Learn Math with LEGO

Teaching fractions can be easier if you start with something a child is familiar with, like LEGO bricks. This introductory lesson is only good for the simplest fractions fractions based on a total of eight pips, but those are the ones they'll be using the rest of their lives to calculate parts of dollars and gallons (in America, that is). Seems like a genius idea to me, but I've never had LEGO bricks. Is this something schools and parents have been doing all along? -via Geeks Are Sexy

I was pretty good at fractions because I knew how to cook. When you are doubling a recipe, you have to figure out how much is 2/3 cup and 2/3 cup. This Lego thing is great too.
