Thinking Blocks — Model your Math Problems
Thinking Blocks is a suite of learning tools designed to help students solve math word problems accurately and efficiently. Using brightly colored blocks, students model mathematical relationships and identify known and unknown quantities. The model provides students with a powerful image that organizes information and simplifies the problem solving process. By modeling increasingly complex word problems, students develop strong reasoning skills which will facilitate the transition from arithmetic to algebra.
We suggest that you as a parent read through About Coolmath.com first and then explore the site yourself before having your child(ren) go to the site. It helps you to understand the thinking behind the site and types of games included there. There are many options and they might not all be appropriate for your child’s level.
