# Make Number Concepts Visual and Concrete

Use the thinking toolkits to engage your learners in Maths. The manipulative nature of the bricks means that learners are free to experiment and 'play' with new ideas. Make it visual, make it fun.

## Abstract to concrete number concepts

These ideas will help you create lessons which are both visual and playful. Treat each PDF as an idea that can be built upon (literally).
