Spiral Science & Math Manipulative
Posted by Ed Connors on 3/10/09
I am please to announce the introduction of the Spiral
Science & Math Manipulative which was MANUFACTURED in
It is a double-sided magnetic manipulative based upon the
classic tiling forming a rectangle approaching phi. It is
used to introduce children to the Fibonacci Series and the
world of naturally occurring spirals. During a
brainstorming exercise children are challenged to identify
where they can find naturally occurring spirals… Answers
and clues exist on the back side of the manipulative.
Subsequent exercises lead students to use a student size
manipulative scaled to the metric system for a variety of
exercises related to units of measure, addition,
ratio/proportionality, graphing, and critical thinking.
Please check out our website and let us know what you
think! A great way to promote education and employment
within the state!
