Cuisenaire Rods are used to teach arithmetic. Each coloured rod has a number from one to ten, ten white rods set side by side are the same length as one orange rod, a ten.

These were common teaching aids in the 1960's in Australian Schools.

Cuisenaire Roads were used when I was in primary school in the 1960's.

I recently came upon a set in a museum. Wow - that makes me feel old!

The rods were created by Belgian primary school teacher, Georges Cuisenaire in the 1920's. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuisenaire_rods
No i haven't ever used these.

I was finished school by the 60's so perhaps that is why.

Yes I used them in the 60's in school.
Loved them heaps too. :)
I think we need them back in schools, kids would have a better education.

Keep it simple, keep it real.
Ohhhh I haven't used them in years, but this reminds me that I wanted to get some for the kids.
Oh yes, I love Cuisenaire rods! I have very fond memories of playing with them as an infant, I used them a lot when I was a teacher and I have just bought a set for my son :) They are fabulous!
No, thank goodness! They were just coming into vogue in Schools when I went into High School.

We're they ever any good to teach kids' Maths? Never heard any results, & they were stopped being used eventually.
I used them in the early 80's and remember that 'smell' they had.
Oh yes, I have a set, it is great for creating pictures!
