I love concrete manipulatives. I have been using them in one form or another since I went to my first Marcy Cook presentation back in the early 90’s. She was on the forefront of using number tiles to solve problems. They seem like the DNA of the open middle problems floating around today.
Total transparency moment here, I couldn’t figure out the hex one on my own. Which I guess is good because I am sure there will be students who just cannot wrap their brains around how that might work.
I am for sure going to be using that web page where you can just use pattern blocks of whatever size you need. That is a really powerful tool.
