As its creator says, “SUMBLOX makes learning maths, simple”. That is, these blocks of numbers carved in wood, make it easy to learn the most basic everyday mathematical concepts through play.
SAME HEIGHT, SAME VALUE. Each number has a height proportional to the amount it represents, so that if we stack a 3 and a 7, they will reach the same height as the 10. Or if we stack four 2s, they will reach the same height as one 8 or a 5 on top of a 3.
Additions, multiplications, fractions, proportionality, subtractions, divisions ... that come out of the paper and jump into our hands, so that we can manipulate and understand them with all our senses. There is no better way to learn numbers than through joy and wonder.
And of course, they also serve to simply make towers, letters or free constructions!
We are big fans of materials that help us to understand abstract mathematical concepts using a hands on approach and for this reason Sumblox is one of our favourite brands. Each block is carved from superior quality beech wood. Ideal for homes and schools.
