  1. I use Geometric Solids in the computer lab to have the students complete a table with information about the number of edges, vertices, and faces of 8 solid figures. They click on them and a color appears which allows them to count very easily. This follows the initial lesson of introducing the parts on geometric models.

    I also love the Product Game. I usually play the class first using a projector. We discuss the stratgies that can be used in placing the marker on different factors. The students are practicing their multiplication facts while using logic. I use this in a flex group during our small group time during the math lesson.

    I’d love to hear about your successes with other manipulatives.
