Mats are a rod structure that allows students to intuitively grasp and perceive certain mathematical concepts such as equality, composition of numbers, and more.

This FREE sample includes an activity mat in both color and black and white. The activity mat provides an exhaustive composition of numbers 2 -4. These are designed to be used with Cuisenaire® Rods.

There are 4 Worksheets to observe and describe these structures. Two of the worksheets are divergent in nature, so that students may return to the worksheets again and again.

Students develop their observation skills by comparing and contrasting structures. Students use their observations to predict outcomes.

Notice and wonder tables are provided in journaling pages to provide student directed explorations. Similar and Different tables focus students’ observations more.

To purchase the FULL product to include exploration in composing and decomposing numbers 2-6, go to PDL's Number Building Play Mats.
