At SumBlox we believe learning should be fun, and games should be challenging and interactive. 

That's why we worked hard developing an extensive learning support system to support you and your children or students, so that you can get the most out of your time playing with our blocks. A Home Sumblox set with the activty cards to enjoy learning numbers!

The best teaching methods can vary depending on the teacher and the students, but we believe there is no single 'silver bullet' to solve all educational hurdles. Whether the learning environment is 'teacher-centred' or 'student-centred', if the methods are considered high or low tech, the goal is the same. These activities are designed to develop academic knowledge through a series of games and challenges, that can be enjoyed by educators and students a-like. 

The SumBlox ecosystem is an almost perfect embodiment of Kinesthetic learning in action. Children learn through the gamification of subject matter, and the repetition of certain mathematical concepts through a variety of activities, avoiding burnout or boredom.

This deck of 80 activity cards is designed for a set of SumBlox including 80 blocks.

Home Set Sumblox

Sumblox 43 Piece Home kit includes: 43 solid hardwood beech blocks ten 1 blocks; 4 each of the numbers 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 blocks; one 10 block.

For what age are SumBlox best suited?

SumBlox are great for children and adults of all ages but are best suited, academically, for children ages 2-12.

What mathematical concepts can SumBlox teach? Students can learn a wealth of information through play and hands-on exploration. These topics include:

Number Sense

  • Number recognition
  • One-to-one correspondence
  • Compare numbers
  • Subitizing
  • Counting
  • Cardinality
  • Number sequence
  • Hierarchical Inclusion
  • Understanding our base-ten system
  • Place value
  • Measuring Lengths
  • Reason abstractly and quantitatively
  • Understand Equivalence
  • Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common
  • Algebraic Thinking
  • Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight
  • Classify objects into given categories

Addition / Subtraction

  • Solve Addition and Subtraction word problems using objects
  • Compose and decompose numbers
  • Find missing addends
  • Skip counting

Multiplication / Division

  • Define multiplication; emphasis on multiples
  • Find factors of whole numbers and use commutative property of multiplication
  • Classify whole numbers (greater than one) as prime or composite
  • Draw conclusions about the factors of a whole number
  • Use associative property of multiplication
  • Use distributive property of multiplication

Fractions / Adding Fractions

  • Define denominator of fractions
  • Define numerator of fractions within halves, fourths, and eights
  • Find equivalent fractions within thirds, sixths, ninths, and twelfths
  • Compare two fractions using inequality symbols
  • Compare and order three fractions using compound inequalities
  • Find the value of a fraction of a whole number
  • Find the fraction, or part, a given value is of a whole value
  • Add two fractions with the same denominator to get a sum up to one whole and fully decompose a given fraction
  • Add two fraction addends with the same denominator to get a sum greater than one whole
  • Add multiple fraction addends to find sums greater than one whole and represent sums in improper form and mixed numbers
  • Add two fraction addends with different denominators (only having to scale one of the addends)
  • Add three fraction addends with different denominators (only having to scale two of the addends)
  • Add two fractions addends with different denominators (having to scale all addends to find a common denominator)

Innovative Maths Blocks

SumBlox are an innovative way to develop maths skills. Learning to count, add, subtract, multiply and much more is as simple as stacking building blocks. SumBlox are solid wood stacking number blocks designed to improve numeracy and make learning more accessible, more fun, and more exciting. They encourage both hand-eye coordination and improve motor skills. Smaller sets of SumBlox will introduce individual children to learning with SumBlox and larger sets allow exploration of more complex concepts, and further cooperation with other learners. There is endless potential to learn with building blocks, and the freedom to create something beautiful is confined only to your imagination!

Testimonials

This is one of the best products I have ever seen to help young children learn about numbers and basic arithmetic

Professor Keith Devlin (Stanford Mathematician, Author & NPR 'Math guy')

SumBlox are engaging and entertaining, children can learn through play, either on their own or with other children. Teachers can use them in their classrooms to teach basic math skills. In essence, SumBlox is a creative learning tool that enables children to play and do the work of childhood.

Dr. Jean Lau Chin (Ed. D, School Psychology, Adelphi University Professor)

These beautiful wooden numbers are open-ended and allow children to self-direct their learning. These numbers bring math exploration to life. My youngest, middle and oldest child all use them productively and in their own unique way.
