How to Use This Course
Hands-On Math Help is a play-based math course based on Cuisenaire rods. It includes a free, downloadable Cuisenaire rod app (currently only available for Windows) and weekly video tutorials that are designed to teach parents how to teach math in a fun, hands-on way using the rods.
*Please note, if you do not have a Windows-based system, the videos can stand alone without the app and provide wonderful advice and teaching tips. The app is simply another tool you can use with your students.
Hands-On Math Help with Cuisenaire Rods is designed to empower parents to help their children learn. Its purpose is to help parents of students in preschool-3rd grade make math enjoyable instead of frustrating. Through a free app and weekly tutorial videos, Philip Rowlands shows parents how to teach math in a manner that involves play, directed activities, open-ended tasks, and challenges. It is designed to work with Cuisenaire rods, but instructions for making your own set are included if you do not currently have them.
