The K'NEX® Education Intermediate Math & Geometry set is designed to address critical mathematics concepts in the upper elementary school classroom and provide instructional models that will enhance students' understanding of important concepts and algorithms.
K'NEX® Rods and Connectors and the included teacher's guide allow you to easily and effectively offer students a program of study that uses hands-on exploration in conjunction with an engaging inquiry-based approach to learning. Students work cooperatively and are encouraged to interact with each other as they build, investigate, discuss and evaluate mathematical concepts, ideas and models.
Research has shown that the use of manipulatives to develop mathematics concepts has many benefits. It allows students to improve their conceptual understanding, achievement and problem solving skills; it encourages student reflections on retaining the information; it promotes a positive attitude toward mathematics; and it develops more self-confidence in students. K'NEX® is a powerful manipulative for students to use in developing and maintaining mathematics concepts.
Set includes 920 K'NEX® parts – enough to build 95 K'NEX® Math and Geometry models. Builds up to four models simultaneously. Support 12 - 16 students working as teams. Grades 4 – 6. Building instructions and teacher's guide aligned to national standards and Common Core Mathematics included. Packaged in a strong storage tray with snap-on lid.
