# Math for kids with Cuisenaire rods

I work with kids and i am searching some cool stuff to do with Cuisenaire rods. Thinking about an application i thought that i can show to my students what will be the sum of first $N\in\mathbb{N}$ numbers using the sticks. Anyone can give me more usage like this one?

• I hope the kids get well and you will teach them a lot of awesome math... – Adam Nov 27 '13 at 19:56
• You can use it for Towers of Hanoi, maybe show them some induction with the Towers of Hanoi. A google search will get you to the induction proof. – GinKin Nov 27 '13 at 19:56
