Each School Box is made of individual curriculum guides, one for each core subject, including Math. Each guide covers a full year of study using core courses from SchoolhouseTeachers.com.

## Hands-On Math Students have different learning styles. More visual students may do well with pictures and white board drawings. Students who are audio learners might do better with verbal instructions. Kinetic-oriented students might do best shouting out answers to math drills while bouncing on a pogo stick. All learners, however, absorb math better with hands-on activities interspersed in their learning experience. The following courses may help inspire your creativity.

### Let’s Do Math Outside

What do bugs, nature trails, and rocks have to do with math?

### Hands-On Math Help with Cuisenaire Rods

Cuisenaire Rods are the ultimate math-learning manipulative. They are fixed shapes that represent the numbers one through ten. However, they can be made at home with connecting centimeter cubes, using designated colors for columns of one, two, three, and so on. This course uses a computer simulation program (included) to represent the rods. It teaches parents how to present the concepts. Concepts can then be taught to students using the interactive program, physical blocks (purchased separately), or handmade options.

### Special Needs

This course is a nineteen-part program to help those with children with special needs, including difficulty with math. It provides practical solutions and helpful tips for choosing curriculum and modifying and adapting instruction. For math help, see Lesson Fourteen: Assistive Technology: Struggling with Math.
