Abstract

Creativity is an integral part of mathematics. In this article I examine the increase in awareness of creativity in mathematics using Fröbel’s blocks in a college classroom. A majority of students found the introduction of the “gifts” of the founder of Kindergarten to a college geometry classroom enhancing their interest in mathematics. They judged the wooden blocks helpful in their understanding of geometry. The students showed increased awareness of creativity in mathematics.
