SumBlox Minis are a multi-sensory maths tool that allows students to visualise the value of numbers through height, making primary maths concepts (addition to fractions) significantly easier to understand and remember.
SumBlox Minis are a more compact version of the Original SumBlox.
These blocks are made from high quality, solid hardwood and come with lessons and activities that teach through games. The heights of the blocks are designed so that, for example, a 2 and 8 block stacked on top of each other will be the same height as the 10 block. As long as the numbers add up, the heights will match. It works for Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication, Fractions, adding Fractions and some teachers are even teaching Year 6 Algebra.
SumBlox Minis allow kids to explore and discover maths on their own terms through an engaging hands-on play activity that they already enjoy – playing with blocks.
SumBlox Minis are a math manipulative, building block set, and a discovery toy for any child to naturally learn mathematics and its properties through play.
SumBlox minis can be played with in many ways, foster many skills sets and can be used for learning activities even before a child understands the concept of numbers and their value.
