Introduction to Ratios

Cuisenaire Rods provide a concrete way to talk about the concept of ratios. The “I get, you get” idea comes from Crewton Ramone’s House of Math – lots of great ideas there!

Using manipulatives to teach complex math concepts will bring a wider range of children to understanding than the traditional formula-driven way of teaching. Children with visual and kinesthetic learning styles will especially benefit from this style of instruction.
