Manipulatives are integral to the Everyday Mathematics program. By emphasizing the power of manipulatives and helping children learn to employ them intelligently, Everyday Mathematics is working to make the mathematics in school resemble mathematics of the real world. Each grade level Manipulative Kit contains supplies to extend lessons and student learning. For teacher convenience, manipulative kits for each grade level of the Everyday Mathematics program have been assembled.
Two kits, a Basic Kit and one with 25 marker boards, are offered per grade level K through 6, and one Basic Kit is available at the Pre-K level. Each Classroom Manipulative Kit includes durable plastic tubs for convenient storage. Additional manipulatives are also available separately.
