First, the good: These rods feel nice in your hands. The plastic is high-quality and solid.
Unfortunately, because of how the plastic rods are manufactured, they bulge out at the sides. Not a lot, just enough that you can't stack the rods on top of each other, and so that, crucially, eight one rods don't actually add up to one eight rod. Of course, a major reason for using C-rods is so a child can develop an intuitive sense that eight of these is exactly one of these, etc., so this is a pretty big concern.
For an hour or so, I thought I was overreacting, but my mathy spouse came home, started to play with our brand-new C-rods, and after about 30 seconds said "These don't work the way they're supposed to work." Alas. I'm going to return these and pick up a set of the wood rods. I've heard good things about the wooden Mathematics Made Meaningful set (unfortunately not sold by Amazon at this time... hint, hint.) and may try that one instead.
addition and subtraction plus other areas of math that to a 5 or 6
year old mind are quite abstract... enter Cuisenaire Rods... I used
to teach Montessori, but did not have access to all of the beads, so
ordered these and have been working with my Grandson who took to them
like a duck takes to water... they really help and they give him
a visual proof as he does problems on a page that seems to give him
some reassurance he is doing the problem correctly. I did start him
out with the rods that link together but these are fine now that he
knows which color is which number. Here is the link for the connecting ones:

Don't be put off if you are not a teacher...there is lots of info
on the internet how to use them, and they are very basic.
Hope this helps!
