Teacher Cleverly Uses LEGO To Explain Math To Schoolchildren

Math. It’s something many of us struggle with throughout our lives.

While it may be intimidating and painful for many, brilliant school teacher Alycia Zimmerman is challenging that narrative by using LEGO bricks to help her students develop basic math skills.

It turns out that LEGO bricks are extremely helpful in explaining math notions and calculations, making her method incredibly effective.

This is exciting for both parents and children who struggle with math at home.

“In the classroom, the tiny bricks are now my favorite possibility-packed math manipulative,” she writes in an article for Scholastic that goes more into depth about these bricks’ potential uses.
