How to Use the Math-U-See Manipulatives
From Math Manipulatives to Mastery

We had an in-depth discussion about using the fraction overlays.
Further, sometimes difficulty with word problems is solely due to not understanding the underlying concepts, and that’s the first reason to use manipulatives. They give such a strong understanding of those concepts.

Check the index in the back of the Instruction Manual for those word problems and tips.Upcoming Webinars
