Subject: Re: Mathematical manipulatives

I am not quite certain what kind of mathematics manipulatives you might need.
Do you just need any kind or will you be using them to teach a certain
mathematics concept? My first thought is that you can make a set of polyhedra
as a demonstration tool from a web site from which you can print the nets. You
will find them here:


I actually think that it is a more effective learning tool if the students
put them together.

Another idea is that there are tangrams available on the web here:


Then, if you would just like to use manipulatives with your students that are
on the Internet, here is a nice collection of links:


I hope that is helpful. If there is a specific manipulative or mathematical
concept that you were thinking of, please write back and we will try again.
