Watch dozens of math concepts unfold in the palm of your student’s hand. We guarantee you’ll become a fan of The Fan.
Math has never been so tangible
The Math Fans were developed to help regular and special education elementary students and older special education students improve their basic math skills. With the Math Fans, basic math concepts are presented using manipulatives with highly visual graphics, words, and numbers. Included with this groundbreaking product are lesson plans covering nine units, each sequenced for pre-k–K; 1st and 2nd grade; and 3rd grade and up. The tangible and graphically-appealing Math Fans help reinforce topics such as: one-to-one correspondence, counting and number order, greater than/less than, money, shapes, fractions, place value, addition, and subtraction.
The Math Fan set is a multi-faceted teaching tool that contains the following components:
Two sets of 1–10 Fans
Ten 10 Blocks
One 100 Block
A comprehensive CD containing an 80-page PDF with Teaching Strategies, Lesson Plans, and Student Worksheets
Math Fans are compact and user-friendly
The Math Fans are easy to teach and easy to learn. Best of all, their design will leave you with a tidy classroom! Unlike many other teaching manipulatives, the Fan components do not contain loose parts and pieces, eliminating classroom cleanup and enhancing effectiveness.
The 100 Block is a set of ten 10 Blocks bound together to make 100. Use it to demonstrate the hundreds place or to make a three-digit number
Each 10 Block is a set of 10 joined TouchSticks. The ten 10 Blocks are used to address the tens place in place value or for counting by tens.
Each piece of the 1–10 Fans is called a TouchStick. The front TouchStick of each Fan illustrates a penny, the word “pennies,” and a TouchPoint numeral. The back of each TouchStick illustrates a shape divided into equal parts representing a fraction, the numerical version of the fraction, and the name of each shape.
Sequenced lesson plans make the Math Fans our most comprehensive teaching aid
The teacher suggestion activities, worksheets, and applications in Math Fans are divided into nine units based on subject matter. The subjects address number recognition, counting, number order, comparing values, pennies, shapes, fractions, and place value. The skills progress slightly in difficulty from unit to unit and some units are a continuation of the skills from the preceding units. Each unit includes worksheets. Within each unit the suggested teaching strategies and application activities show skill levels for grades Pre-Kindergarten to third grade and beyond. The activity sheets can be used in any order: to assess skills as pre- and posttests, teach basic concepts, reinforce new skills, or review previously learned information from each unit.
