Whether you work with young children or older learners the use of practical materials is fundamental to developing conceptual understanding.
Cuisenaire rods predate the bar model by several decades and are the concrete model that underpins bar modelling. The book illustrates how you can use Cuisenaire rods with your learners, whatever age they may be. The diagrams give the detail of how the mathematical concepts are represented while the photos give authenticity, showing them being used by learners. The ideas in the book can be used to deepen the understanding of your learners so they can master the structure of the number system.
