Using LEGO to Build Math Concepts  Scholastic.com  4 views

"I was not one of those LEGO® kids growing up. Sure, my brothers had LEGO bricks, and every so often I'd kidnap some tiny LEGO men for a makebelieve game. But I didn't truly appreciate the engineering capacity of those studded plastic bricks. They were just so rigidly rectangular!
As an adult, I've come to appreciate LEGO, both for its rectilinear aesthetic, and even more so, for its mathematical might. In the classroom, the tiny bricks are now my favorite possibilitypacked math manipulative! Read on for a sampling of math activities that use LEGO pieces to build and reinforce key math concepts."
