Students in undergraduate mathematics classes not only beneﬁt from the use of manipulatives in the classroom, but also enjoy them. This paper speciﬁcally outlines one successful activity that used manipulatives in a large section of a precalculus course and then explores possibilities in other courses. It also addresses the use of mathematics manipulatives as a platform to introduce both active and cooperative learning in a large lecture setting.
