Welcome to Activity Resources, Inc.

A book publisher and distributor dedicated to Mathematical manipulatives for over 25 years!

Activity Resources is a company created by a mathematics teacher for mathematics teachers. Mary Laycock has been a mathematics educator for 60 years. Her goal throughout her life has been to provide real understanding of mathematics through hands-on (manipulative) activities.

The products of Activity Resources are a compilation of the supplementary materials that Mary Laycock has found can help a teacher build this type of understanding in students. Mary has written or edited well over 100 of the products. The ones she did not write or edit are products from many other authors and publisher who meet her criteria for quality teaching content.

Mary believes that a concrete (hands-on) approach produces the best understanding at any level from learning to count through calculus.
