The K’NEX® Education Intermediate Math & Geometry set is designed to address critical mathematics concepts in the upper elementary school classroom and provide instructional models that will enhance students’ understanding of important concepts and algorithms.
K’NEX® Education Intermediate Math & Geometry and the included teacher’s guide allow you to easily and effectively offer students a program of study that uses hands-on exploration in conjunction with an engaging inquiry-based approach to learning. Students work cooperatively and are encouraged to interact with each other as they build, investigate, discuss and evaluate mathematical concepts, ideas and models.
Research has shown that the use of manipulatives to develop mathematics concepts has many benefits. It allows students to improve their conceptual understanding, achievement and problem solving skills; it encourages student reflections on retaining the information; it promotes a positive attitude toward mathematics; and it develops more self-confidence in students.
STEM Education focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts taught through problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning and critical thinking. STEM Education requires students to be active participants in the learning. K’NEX® models offer hands-on learning opportunities that encourage scientific inquiry, investigation and experimentation. Our inquiry-based lessons challenge students as they build, investigate, problem solve, discuss and evaluate scientific and design principles in action.
