Maximize the Value of Manipulatives
Driving The Super Source is ETA hand2mind’s conviction that children construct their own understandings through rich, hands-on mathematical experiences. The Super Source is a series of books, each of which contains a collection of activities to use with a specific manipulative. Complement any core math curriculum with The Super Source Teacher Resource Guides, and corresponding Manipulative Kits and Big Books.
The Super Source activities are easy to use, idea-rich, and written in a teacher-friendly format. See for yourself.
