New capabilities strengthen reading and writing skills
New Maths View builds conceptual understanding in math
Now Kidspiration extends the proven principles of visual learning to mathematics. Combining the hands-on learning power of manipulatives with all the added benefits of computer interactivity, Kidspiration's new Math View and visual math tools help learners build a strong mathematical foundation to understand numeracy concepts.
Five visual math tools
Kidspiration's visual maths tools focus on the core conceptual foundations of counting, place value on computation and geometric thinking. Pupils build number sense and spatial reasoning and understand the meaning behind the four basic operations while communicating their thinking with words, numbers and maths symbols.
Kidspiration Colour Tiles™
Pupils use Kidspiration Colour Tiles to count and compare, explore properties of number and operations and develop computation strategies. With Kidspiration Colour Tiles, pupils learn to solve area and perimeter problems and model number patterns and the four basic operations.
Kidspiration Pattern Blocks™
Pupils use Kidspiration Pattern Blocks to investigate the properties and attributes of shapes through composition and decomposition. They produce patterns and tessellations, explore similarity and congruence, experiment with symmetry and represent fractions.
Kidspiration Base Ten Blocks™
Pupils use Kidspiration Base Ten Blocks to understand place value and strengthen number sense. With Kidspiration Base Ten Blocks, they count, compare, group, partition and create equivalent representations of whole numbers and decimals. Kidspiration Base Ten Blocks also introduce pupils to procedures for operations on multi-digit numbers.
Kidspiration Fraction Tiles™
Pupils use Kidspiration Fraction Tiles to compare and order fractions and to understand equivalent fractions. They find common denominators, translate between improper fractions and mixed numbers and model basic operations with fractions.
Kidspiration Fraction Boxes™
Pupils use Kidspiration Fraction Boxes to represent fractions visually to build a strong conceptual foundation for future work with fractions. Pupils compare, order, simplify and find equivalent fractions. They use Kidspiration Fraction Boxes to model basic operations with like and unlike denominators. Kidspiration Fraction Boxes also introduce pupils to improper fractions, mixed numbers and representing word problems.
