SumBlox mission is to bring about lasting change in education through the creation of powerful learning games. We believe that you don’t have to sacrifice learning content to make something fun!

This is the largest set available with 100 Blocks + 4 Lesson Books

A classroom set of SumBlox (100 blocks) plus 4 teaching manuals (Addition/Subtraction, Multiplication, Fractions, Adding Fractions; 50+ pages each w/ illustrations).

## The world of maths in a building block.

Sumblox are a set of wooden blocks shaped in the numerals 1-10. Each block is proportional in size to the value of the number. So a 2 block is twice as tall as a 1 block and a 10 block is ten times as tall.

By manipulating the blocks and stacking them in different combinations, children can learn to recognize numerals, explore addition and subtraction and practice basic multiplication, division, and fractions.

### 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.
