Special Note about the Manipulatives regarding the Digital Pack.
The physical manipulatives are an integral part of the Math-U-See instructional method and have been for more than 25 years. We do understand, however, that they can be difficult for families that are on the go and that they have physical limitations when building large problems. While instructors and students can use the digital version to build problems just as they would with the physical, we strongly believe that the digital should be used as a supplement after students have demonstrated understanding of the concept using the physical manipulatives. Research shows that the more different ways a student is exposed to a concept, the more likely they are to understand and retain it. In fact, according to Wenglinsky, “When students are exposed to hands-on learning on a weekly rather than a monthly basis, they prove to be 72% of a grade level ahead in mathematics and 40% of a grade level ahead in science.”
