There are fraction bars, algebraic tiles, tangram and pentominoes pieces, number tiles, polygons and grids to play with.
But today, I want to introduce you another activity more like a game from the page "Factris".
Factris is an updated version of Tetris game. Where you can change the shape of the blocks according to their factors. I am addicted now, I am sure the kids will like to play with it too.
They can learn and practice about factors, prime numbers, area calculation while having fun ..
