This Third Grade Teacher Uses LEGO To Explain Math To Students
December 11, 2015
Alycia Zimmerman, a third grade teacher at P.S. 33 Chelsea Prep in Manhattan, found a creative and fun way to teach her students mathematics.
LEGO is a brilliant educational toy to explain mathematical concepts like fractions and squares.
Zimmerman told Scholastic:
"Fractions always seem to trip up my students. The only way to combat fraction-mayhem is to provide students with a LOT of opportunities to experience fractions with tangible objects."
So if you're a parent or teacher, go find some LEGO bricks and take some time exploring how they work. Count the studs, explore the dimensions, and build some towers.
I guarantee, you'll now be thinking... MATH!
