Math-U-See Manipulative Integer Block Set
The Math-U-See Manipulatives are more than a supplement, they are an integral part of the curriculum. Used from the Primer through Algebra 1 levels, the manipulatives build each concept from place value through polynomials though the use of Integer Blocks, Fraction Overlays, and Algebra/Decimal Inserts.

For more than 20 years Math-U-See’s renowned mastery-based, multisensory, student-paced program has been the answer for countless families. Math-U-See is a complete, comprehensive K-12 math curriculum that uses manipulatives to illustrate and teach the concepts.

Please note: Math-U-See comes in a standard cardboard box with lightweight plastic tray. These do not hold up well, either in shipment or in daily life, so we'd suggest considering a different long-term storage option, such as a bin or bag. Our crew always does their best, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee that the packaging will arrive in good condition.
CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
These are awesome manipulative for helping my kids better understand math! We are loving the whole MUS curriculum, and my son really enjoys the blocks.
not effective at all, kids just ignore them
My daughter 9 years young loves using these block to help her through her math. Also my kinders love playing with them as well. Hopefully we can start counting with them as well soon.
My daughter likes working with the blocks when she needs to to learn a new concept, although she generally doesn't need them for long. They help with visualizing what you're doing on the paper. We used an abacus for a bit with another program, and incorporated that with the blocks for awhile, as one worked better than the other for certain types of problems. The blocks are fun to play with, too.
This is a critical part of the math u see program. It’s an investment. Once you have it, you will not need to buy it again. The next year, you will just need the books. Well worth it to understand math concepts.
