What is this site?

This site is an online reference for Mathematics Materials (sometimes also called Mathematics Manipulatives) based off the Edx Education Mathematics Manipulatives Reference Guide written by Dr Paul Swan and first published in 2016.

The site aims to assist parents, teachers, maths buyers and others in the understanding of the many Mathematics Manipulatives and their uses.

The Mathematics Manipulatives Reference Guide has been recreated on this site with added videos and extended entries.

Entries from the 2016 published book. See “Manipulatives List” in the navigation to view these entries online.
