By Rosamond Welchman. More than 40 activities help teachers use manipulatives to teach traditionally difficult but important middle school topics. Students investigate relationships between concepts, rather than focus on individual topics. For example, students investigate the relationship between surface area and volume, between two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects, and between hexahedra and decahedra dice in a game of chance. Students pages require students to write about their experience. Teacher pages are detailed and include suggestions for stimulating discussion. Three-hole punched, 120 pages.

The kit contains:

• 4 Reflect-It Mirrors
• AlphaShapes (52 pcs.)
• Cuisenaire Rods (2 sets)
