Children will discover the beauty and geometry of math when practicing numbers, patterns and learning the times tables with this colorful Wooden Math Wheel, a stunning educational toy from Wilded Family.

Number wheels are learning toys used in Waldorf education as a tool to learn and practice math, but also to engage children’s hands as they weave intricate patterns. It is now well-documented that there is a direct link between the hands and brain development!

Used in both Waldorf and Montessori classrooms, a Math Wheel can be used for all ages. Younger children who might not be ready to learn multiplication can make patterns, count and learn about even and odd numbers. Or simply engage their hands in making patterns.

To use in math lessons with older children, when passing "0" at the top, the numbers carry a unit of ten afterwards.

For example, here's how multiplying by 3 would work:

Starting at 0, the first length of yarn loops around the 3 peg (3 x 1 = 3), the second length (3 x 2 = 6) loops around the 6 peg, (3 x 3 = 9), the third to the 9 peg, (3 x 4 = 12) the next loops to the 2 peg (Every trip around the circle passing the 0 peg is moving up a unit of ten) so we are now at 12 (2 + 10), (3 x 5 = 15) looping around the 5 peg. This is also known as skip counting.

You can use the cord that comes with the product, or yarn or even rubber bands.

This is an educational tool and should be used with the supervision of an adult.
