An environment which simulates working with Cuisenaire rods.
Here are some rods that are different colours. How could I make a dark green rod using yellow and white rods?
How many trains can you make which are the same length as Matt's, using rods that are identical?
Can you make a train the same length as Laura's but using three differently coloured rods? Is there only one way of doing it?
These squares have been made from Cuisenaire rods. Can you describe the pattern? What would the next square look like?
A train building game for 2 players.
Use the Cuisenaire rods environment to investigate ratio. Can you find pairs of rods in the ratio 3:2? How about 9:6?
Use the fraction wall to compare the size of these fractions - you'll be amazed how it helps!
Train game for an adult and child. Who will be the first to make the train?
Can you make arrange Cuisenaire rods so that they make a 'spiral' with right angles at the corners?
Using only the red and white rods, how many different ways are there to make up the other colours of rod?
Using the picture of the fraction wall, can you find equivalent fractions?
