Research shows that learning math concepts with manipulatives:
Makes math more interesting for students of all ages
Math-U-See integrates a consistent set of manipulatives to visualize and understand abstract concepts into high school levels. You can read more about how Math-U-See incorporates manipulatives here.
Integer Block Kit
The Integer Block Kit is the foundation for the Math-U-See Curriculum. Students use these manipulatives from our introductory level (Primer) all the way through Algebra 1. These color-coded blocks allow students to visualize math operations and demonstrate concepts.
This 133-piece set includes 20 ones and tens, 13 fives, and 10 each of twos, threes, fours, sixes, sevens, eights, nines, and hundreds blocks, plus the Decimal Street™/Block Clock poster.

Fraction Overlay Kit
Used when teaching fractions in Epsilon, the Fraction Overlay Kit includes clear lined vinyl overlays that portray the denominator and colored vinyl pieces that represent the numerator. This kit allows students to easily represent halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, eighths, tenths, and sixteenths.
This 49-piece kit includes 5 green, 2 orange, 3 pink, 4 yellow, 5 blue, 6 purple, and 8 brown vinyl pieces representing the numerator. The clear lined vinyl overlays include two each of halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, eights, and tenths, and one-half sheet each of eighths and sixteenths.
