### Using SMART manipulatives for K Math

1. 1. Essential Question: How can we use manipulatives to improve student achievement in math?
2. 2. Using manipulative materials in teaching mathematics will help students learn: <ul><li>to relate real world situations to mathematic symbolism. </li></ul><ul><li>to work together cooperatively in solving problems. </li></ul><ul><li>to discuss mathematical ideas and concepts. </li></ul><ul><li>to verbalize their mathematic thinking. </li></ul><ul><li>that there are many different ways to solve problems. </li></ul><ul><li>that mathematic problems can be symbolized in many different ways. </li></ul>
3. 3. manipulatives two color counters unifix cubes thermometers tangrams coins magnetic numbers calculators geoboards base ten blocks shapes scales and balances pattern blocks clocks
4. 4. Top 10 Math Manipulatives <ul><li>Pocket chart with number cards 0-100 </li></ul><ul><li>Students can increase their understanding of </li></ul><ul><li>numbers by identifying numbers, number patterns, counting, skip counting, etc.. </li></ul>
5. 5. Top 10 Math Manipulatives <ul><li>One-inch blocks </li></ul><ul><li>These blocks can be used to measure, count, </li></ul><ul><li>create and extend patterns. </li></ul>
6. 6. Top 10 Math Manipulatives <ul><li>Large geometric solids </li></ul><ul><li>The plastic shapes illustrate relationships </li></ul><ul><li>between area, volume, shape, form and size. </li></ul>
7. 7. Top 10 Math Manipulatives <ul><li>Geoboards </li></ul><ul><li>Geoboards are used in the exploration and recognition of shapes, designs, spatial relationships, angles, </li></ul><ul><li>fractions, area, perimeter, symmetry, and coordinates . </li></ul>
8. 8. Top 10 Math Manipulatives <ul><li>Two sided counters </li></ul><ul><li>These math manipulatives are great for teaching </li></ul><ul><li>number sense and number operations. </li></ul>
9. 9. Top 10 Math Manipulatives <ul><li>Fraction circles </li></ul><ul><li>Fraction circles teach students about fractions </li></ul><ul><li>and their relationships. When young children begin using them </li></ul><ul><li>they see, feel, and compare equivalent fractions and as they </li></ul><ul><li>get older the fraction terms become meaningful from their </li></ul><ul><li>previous play experiences. </li></ul>
10. 10. Top 10 Math Manipulatives <ul><li>Base ten blocks </li></ul><ul><li>Base ten blocks can be used by students to learn </li></ul><ul><li>basic mathematical concepts including addition, </li></ul><ul><li>subtraction, number sense, place value and </li></ul><ul><li>counting. </li></ul>
11. 11. Top 10 Math Manipulatives <ul><li>Unifix Cubes </li></ul><ul><li>Unifix cubes are used for patterning, sorting, </li></ul><ul><li>counting, addition ,subtraction, multiplication </li></ul><ul><li>and measurement. </li></ul>
12. 12. Top 10 Math Manipulatives <ul><li>Wooden blocks </li></ul><ul><li>These blocks can be used when </li></ul><ul><li>teaching geometry, symmetry, number sense, </li></ul><ul><li>counting, and patterns. </li></ul>
13. 13. Top 10 Math Manipulatives <ul><li>Pattern Blocks </li></ul><ul><li>Pattern blocks can be used to teach everything </li></ul><ul><li>from number sense, sorting, shape </li></ul><ul><li>identification, graphing, fractions and </li></ul><ul><li>more. </li></ul>
