Cuisenaire Rods Introductory Set with Rod Track
In the 1980s, when widespread homeschooling in the USA was still in its infancy, I read of a homeschooling mom in Ireland who used multi-colored, multi-length rods to teach her children a variety of mathematical concepts. Using rods in an assortment of ten bright colors to depict numerical values, her children could easily see a multitude of mathematical concepts as they manipulated the rods. The process made perfect sense to me, and I knew our children would benefit from such a versatile mathematical manipulative. After a bit of investigative work, I discovered Cuisenaire rods, and we have been enthusiasts ever since.
Preschool Through Eighth Grade
For over fifty years, Cuisenaire rods have been used to teach a wide variety of mathematical topics such as the basic four operations, fractions, area, solving simple equations, and more. Used in classrooms around the world, this essential learning tool is suitable for preschoolers and on through eighth grade.
Rod Track Included
The set of plastic rods contains seventy-four rods (the smallest rod is a one cm cube, the largest is ten cm long), a tray with lid, an activity guide, and a transparent rod track. The Transparent Rod Track is a nifty little tool that looks like a thirty cm ruler with a one cm groove down its center. It is particularly helpful for early practice of addition and subtraction. Designed specifically for use with Cuisenaire rods, students build Cuisenaire rod trains to practice counting, equivalence, and operation skills.
