"Georges Cuisenaire, a Belgian schoolteacher, wanted to demonstrate how the notes on a musical scale match the relationships among numbers. So he invented a "keyboard of mathematics" in the form of rods with graduated lengths and brilliant colors.
Ever since, students have used this manipulative to understand numbers and their relationships by matching, comparing, and describing rod relationships. Using these innovative, easy-to-handle rods, teachers can demonstrate color-length, number value-length, and number value-color relationships."
"This unique manipulative is designed for students who actually need to see what they are learning, i.e. what adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing look like beyond the textbook. Written in the visual and creative language of the visual learner, NUMBER NEIGHBORS uses the principles of geometry (the visual side of math) to teach mathematical concepts."
