AN INTRODUCTION TO THE CUISENAIRE RODS, AN APPROACH TO THE TEACHING OF ELEMENTARY MATHEMATICS.
HULL, WILLIAM P.
CUISENAIRE RODS ARE COLORED, RECTANGULAR PIECES OF WOOD ONE UNIT WIDE AND ANY NUMBER OF UNITS LONG. THE COLOR OF THE ROD DEPENDS UPON ITS LENGTH. RODS CAN BE USED IN KINDERGARTEN THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL, BUT ARE PARTICULARILY HELPFUL IN THE EARLY GRADES. THE RODS CAN BE USED TO TEACH CHILDREN SUCH CONCEPTS AS "PLUS,""MINUS,""EQUALS," MULTIPLICATION, AND FACTORS. WAYS OF USING THE RODS TO TEACH THE BASIC MATHEMATICAL CONCEPTS ARE DESCRIBED.
