We use concrete manipulatives quite a lot. Although we teach grade 10/11 (“Workplace Math”), working at an Alt Ed school, all of our students have had massive gaps in their learning due to consistent and prolonged lack of attendance throughout their school lives. Using manipulatives has become normalized. It’s pretty exciting to see students realize that the math truly means something when they see it visually and get to work with it physically. I would like to try using pattern blocks as I have not used them.
