content: 1 large cube – to form a whole, 2 halves, 4 quarters and 8 eights; 1 play mat (40x40cm)
material: beech, natural state; textile fleece
Constructed from solid beech, this unique system is designed to teach children aged three years upwards the various parts making up a whole number. While playing with the three-dimensional pieces i.e. cubes, kiddies learn to distinguish whole shapes and their individual constituents such as halves, quarters, eighths, etc. When advancing to higher primary school grades, they then learn how to express these shapes abstractly in the form of fractions.
This direct learning-by-playing method teaches youngsters the number of different possibilities of forming a cube, say from two halves, one half and four eighths, two quarters and one half, etc.
This educational game is highly recommendable for children with special needs.
