**Grade 3 Resource Books** are supplied for both children and adults providing a year's worth of material and enrichment problems and clear explanations of each solution.

**Videos** are available to registered customers and provide additional support for using the program and all of its components.

**Dominoes** are used at each grade level to generate whole numbers, fractions, and decimals to be used in numerous problems.

**Hundreds Chart** is used in grades 1, 2, and 3 to foster number sense. Basic calculations can become simple with the combination of mental math skills and the use of the hundreds chart.

**Attribute Blocks** are manipulatives with certain characteristics used in sorting activities.

**Shape**– triangle, circle, rectangle, square, and hexagon**Size**– small or big**Color**– yellow, blue , and red- Thickness – thick or thin

**Base-10 Blocks** are used to develop an understanding of place value. They are used in addition and subtraction problems in grades 1, 2, and 3.

**Pattern Blocks** are geometric shapes used to develop patterns. They are also used to formulate bigger shapes out of smaller shapes (three triangles make a trapezoid etc.).

**Ruler** is used to demonstrate linear measure, to find fractional parts of inches, and to estimate and calculate lengths.

**Dice** are used in generating numbers for calculations, fractions, and ratios. A 6-sided cube with numbers instead of dots is used to help the younger child in generating numbers.
