Math Bricks -- Building an Understanding of Math!

A Subscription Service that combines the fun of building out of Lego® bricks with a tangible exploration of math concepts. Intended for elementary age children, each box contains an exploration of fractions interwoven into the building instructions for each module of a configurable Castle. Each module prepares for future lessons. Patent Pending

  • Each build reviews 2 or more math concepts as they apply to fractions. The lessons are integrated in such a way to give a relaxed real world math exploration while they play.
  • Every new account begins with the First box for the Fraction Castle so no one ever misses out.
  • Lego® and Lego® quality and compatible bricks are used for all models and lessons.
  • Each box includes between 125 and 200 bricks to build a section of castle and a castle themed minifigure.
  • Based on decades of research on how children learn, when math becomes engaging for children, and what items are best for relating math concepts. All models and math reviews were designed by an ex-Math Teacher with a Masters in Teaching Mathematics. PATENT PENDING.

Yes, we have special Castle themed mini figures including a horse minifig with green accents. One is included with each box until one of each type has been mailed and then they repeat.

Q: Are there enough supplies for 2 children to share one subscription box?Asked by Christi C., November 2020

Math Bricks answered...November 2020

The box so it is recommended for only one child. There are not enough bricks for 2 or more children to build each model. And each box only contains one minifigure. Thanks for the question.

This is so great, my son loves it. He takes it off and does it all and then shows me the math portion he learned. There were a few pieces left out of the second kit but Tina promptly sent out the replacement. It's easy and fun when there is prompt communcation and solutions. I would highly recommend this!

This is an awesome idea! They actually build fractions, not just discuss what they are. I think it really helped my child understand how to interpret and do math with fractions. And they look forward to getting the next part of the castle. I contacted the seller and actually get a box twice a month. For us the timing of every other week is better than once a month. Fractions can be a hard topic to understand -- I know I struggled with them when I was in school -- but I think this makes it easier and I know it makes it more fun.
