Abstract: Math manipulatives are an exciting way to interest elementary school students. Which designs are most useful? In what way(s) do manipulatives affect the learning process? In my Undergraduate Research Fellowship, I explored varying designs of math manipulatives and which could be most effective in teaching elementary school students. I then designed an affordable and easily manufactured manipulative. This paper details research with elementary school students in some of the ways the manipulatives were used to teach lessons on counting, tens places, and money skills.
