ganitmala

Swati Sircar

Ganitmala is a manipulative version of number line. It is a proportional material that has properties of both groupable and pre-grouped models. Jodo Gyan (https://jodogyan.org/) introduced them in India.

It can be used for introducing whole numbers and all four operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. It can also be used for the division algorithm to find the HCF!

The game featuring Ali, the ant helps the learners comprehend that adding positive integers makes the number bigger. It also gives them the practice of using a scale & number line.

Here is a quick rewind of some interesting ideas that got featured on the Teachers of India website. We know it is not final. We know there are very many resources you found it useful that we couldn't feature in this particular list. How about you making your own list and sending it to us. We also invite you to remix ideas from your own experience and share it with larger teacher community. That would be a great bang to start the year!

A visual manual on how to use a ganitmala to show whole numbers, add, subtract, multiply and divide them. Also includes how to show the division algorithm for HCF.
