Omnifix Cubes from Assessment Services, Inc.
I’m going to come clean and admit that I have a love/hate for math…just leave out the love part. I’m a relatively smart person, but math has always been a thorn in my side. I mean an orange is an orange and a horse is a horse (of course of course – oh, did I ever date myself with that), but math concepts, to me anyway, have been somewhat evasive. I breezed through English and Science, but I didn’t think that I would ever pass Algebra and Geometry.
I need a solid grasp of basic math, doesn’t everyone?
We use math in our day to day lives. I don’t think that there is a day that goes by, that I don’t use math in some way or another. I use subtraction, division, multiplication, fractions, etc. when preparing orders, balancing my accounts, cooking and crafting. Manipulatives are wonderful tools to help with math concepts, and I want to tell you about one particular manipulative, today.
Assessment Services, Inc. graciously sent me a set of 500 Omnifix Cubes. They arrived in a see through sturdy plastic bin, with a securely fitting lid.
With a connector on all six faces, Omnifix Cubes are joined in any direction to create rods and blocks or geometric and abstract forms. Students in the middle elementary grades and up can explore spacial relationships, number bases, fractions, cubed numbers, tessellations, and more. Omnifix Cubes can be used with any math curriculum that specifies linking cubes. They come in four brilliant colors and measure 2cm. Students snap flat shapes together to form a permanent cube which can then be joined to other cubes. Grades 3-12
I am going to be sending these to my grandchildren out in Colorado. I know that they will serve them well for many years to come. Their use and learning with these cubes, will grow with them, as they continue their journey through Elementary, Middle and even High School!
