Using diskii tokens, students can learn about the concept of substitution in math. Here, we have assigned values to red, blue, and orange. Students need to replace the tokens in the equation with these given values to solve the equation, and hence the value of green. This is a wonderful manipulative for students to experiment with equations, the meaning of the = sign, and the concept of substitution. Importantly, students can easily create their own equations, and challenge their peers.
Let’s get to another level in elementary mathematics with students creating and sharing their own problems with peers. Students getting back into in-person schooling are going to need collaborative learning practice!
Work with diskii hands-on manipulatives to create word problems, solve logic problems, learn the meaning of the equals sign and many more fun learning opportunities K-4.
