Hands-On Math

Third-grade students at Indian Rock Elementary are engaged in a hands-on experience with building numbers in different ways.  Hands-on experiences with math concepts assist students in developing a better understanding and foundation of computational skills, leading to accomplishing more accurate and fluent calculations.  The activity with base ten blocks demonstrated in the photo below develops the understanding of renaming numbers and helps make more sense of the regrouping concept in subtraction.
