A very helpful math tool...

These are so cool! We have had a set of Cuisenaire Rods since before my oldest even started 'real' school work.

They are very helpful with many mathematical concepts. Counting by 2's, 3's, 5's, ..10's, etc.

That means they also help with multiplication and division.

I used them last week to help one of my children understand regrouping.

When I bought these many years ago, they were not cheap!

But now, we have ebay and amazon, and you can find them for a little under $14!

Super neat!
