About SumBlox

SumBlox are math building blocks whose individual size is proportional to the number value. Put a "1" block on top of another "1" block and it is the same height as the "2" block. Stack three "3's" beside a "9" and you'll notice they come up to the same level. 


Through hands on play, Sumblox engages and excites children to visually represent math in a unique and fun way that promotes collaboration and cooperation. Stack proportional number blocks and they are literally equal in size and value! SumBlox help with developing understanding of addition, fractions, composing and decomposing, multiplication and so much more!


SumBlox Building Blocks teach a wide range of mathematics through guided, hands-on discovery in our SumBlox Learning Activities. Currently available are series that teach addition and subtraction, multiplication, and fractions. Each series empowers the educator to gradually move students to a deeper understanding of the properties of math through step-by-step investigations, engaging discussions and fun challenges.

Addition & Subtraction:

With Sumblox, students solidify their understanding of addition by focusing on its properties and manipulating the addend pairs of ten. Students connect addition to its inverse property, subtraction, and develop a strategy to find the difference between two whole numbers. These new skills are learned and assessed through fun activities like building the Tower of Ten.

Multiplication
Students use SumBlox to investigate factors and multiples. Multiplication comes to life as they physically see the relationship between multiplication and repeated addition. As they dig deeper into multiplication, they discover the commutative property and build SumBlox Factor Walls to discover all of the factors of a number.

 

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)

Shipping

Within Toronto, Durham, Peel and York, all orders will be charged 11% of the product total for freight. Orders to all other destinations will be billed at 14%. For orders less than $300, a $15 Shipping & Handling charge will be added to your invoice. All orders under $100 will be quoted freight and handling charges before shipping.


For orders over $3,000 please call our customer service department for a freight quote, which may be less than our advertised rate.

Freight carriers deliver only to the front or back door of your institution. If you require goods delivered to a classroom, or if your destination is difficult to access, such as on the second floor, please notify Customer Service at the time you place the order. There may be a small surcharge levied by the carrier, particularly if the shipment contains furniture or equipment. We will be glad to provide a quote for your approval.

All freight charges beyond Provincial forwarding points are the responsibility of the customer. Please call for a freight quote.

From time to time, we may ship an item directly from the manufacturer. Freight will be billed at the normal rate in this event.

When gas prices rise some carriers levee a “gas surcharge”. We reserve the right to add this cost to your invoice, but will only do so if it is absolutely necessary.

 

Returns: 

In the event that you receive a product that does not meet your needs, we are pleased to accept a return on ANY product from our current catalogue within 30 days of receipt. Just call our Customer Service Department to obtain a Return Authorization Number and mail the item back to us. In some cases, for example items ordered in error, you will be responsible for a restocking fee.
