Help with fractions, geometry and measurement

by Sue Colby October 13, 2017

The Education Pattern Blocks have plenty of uses including helping with fractions, geometry and measurement.

We’ve used different shaped Pattern Blocks to display fractions and explore how splitting up the hexagon into different sized blocks can help the children understand fractions in a visual way.

The different sized Pattern Blocks can be split and categorised in a Gratnells tray and insert for easy identification and classroom organisation.

Please refer to Edx Education Mathematics Manipulatives Reference Guide by Dr. Paul Swan for more information about Pattern Blocks and how you can use them.
