The educational tool is for children ages three and up. By playing with the pieces, children learn about shapes and their constituent parts - halves, quarters, eights. In higher grades of primary school, they then learn to express these in abstract form using fractions.
The product includes three key properties:
- Each part (whole, half, etc.) is made out of one solid piece!
- All components are of the same colour (natural wood), which mean that the parts really do make up one single whole.
- The child takes each piece from its own space on the board. He can count on a tray, how many unites he needs to make a whole cube (two halves, four quarters, ect.)
Children learn by playing on how many different ways they can construct a cube; one whole, one half and two quarters, etc.
We highly recomend this educational tool for children with special needs.
