Combine with Optional Math Lab

Buckets, Lab Or Both?
House GEMS buckets in a library or anywhere else in a school or keep them in the Principal’s office (as some have done!). A school may further opt for a world class mathematics laboratory by supplementing the buckets with other things. If you must choose between a lab and buckets, its better to choose buckets which offer flexibility and use for the whole class.
With many sections, scheduling maths lab time is difficult.
Also, unless the lab is large, it is not effective to take the whole class over as one group.
Unlike buckets, there are rarely 40 plus of any one item in a maths lab. Every child cannot therefore get hands-on experience.
Labs often become like museums and do not serve a high purpose factor after some time.
On the other hand, a math lab offers certain advantages, for example, when an expensive item cannot be bought in multiple sets or a large piece cannot be taken from class to class.
