PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

There are many good ways to "see" the relationship among the different sets of real numbers, but most are pictorial. Few visual representations take into account the spatial or kinesthetic learner. For those who need something to touch and move around, this hands-on model of real numbers works well as it gives the students something to see as well as to manipulate. This six page handout contains complete and easy directions on how to construct the model which shows the relationship between real numbers, rational and irrational numbers, integers, whole numbers and natural or counting numbers. Once made, it becomes an invaluable tool for those students who are spatial or kinesthetic. I trust you will find it an effective and useful tool in your classroom as well.

What a great idea! I had never thought of each student making their own, but that would help them to visualize each set of numbers. Thank you for sharing that with me.

Great! Love the physical approach; my students often misunderstand that they are subgroups of each other. Thanks

I understand perfectly what you are saying. My remedial math college students also can remember the different subgroups because of the physical model.
