Geometry for Everyone: Learning Geometry with Manipulatives
Geometry enables individuals to make sense of the world by understanding geometric shapes, principles and relationships . This tenant is supported by the National Council of Mathematics. Arcavi , and Zhang, Ding, Stegall and Mo  propose geometrical knowledge should be rated as one of the relevant and paramount concepts in the study of mathematics. Geometry can be engaging and is often introduced even in the lower grades using fun activities. Clements and Sarama  believe educators must understand how learners master geometrical concepts so that they are able to solve precise and hierarchically more abstract problems which are of crucial importance in the domain of education. Working memory is often identified as the ability to temporarily maintain and even manipulate information such as in different domains in mathematics, i.e. geometry. Working memory along the side of hands-on learning within the domain of geometry, seems to play a vital aspect in the solving of geometric figures and equations , , .
