- Provides child with activities that will concretely illustrate basic properties of measurement. - Students all require extensive experiences in concrete manipulations in order to form sound, transferable mathematical concepts - B.C. Mathematics Curriculum
Guide 1987 (The heads represent the concrete manipulative materials.) - Connects the concrete objects (the heads) to the symbolic (actual written number e.g. 10). This is an essential step in Early Childhood Mathematics. "If we teach only at the symbolic level, young children will only learn about symbols, not mathematics." - Introduces graphing. - Provides child with experiences in conversation (how many does it equal? do you need
more or less?) - Provides child with experiences in serration (can you find a sequence or pattern that is
the same in the beads? The beads repeat: blue, red, yellow, pink and green.) - Each bead is a square centimeter; this provides opportunity to "see and feel" a
centimeter - this helps to internalize the concept of a centimeter.About the Author:
