3D Printed Math Manipulatives

Introduction: 3D Printed Math Manipulatives

Math manipulatives are used in early grade school to help the children understand counting and numbers with something they can touch. Buying simple plastic manipulatives is outrageously expensive, so I made a cheap and easy 3D printable version. Just 3D print them and bring them to class. Painting is optional.

    Unfortunately, as of this point, I have not been able to print them off, ut when I do, I will update this with pictures.
