Product code: LC241

Part of the Cubarithm arithmetic kit, this magnet can be used to remove the weighted cubes from the workboard. Cubarithm is a braille maths teaching aid for visually impaired children or older students with learning difficulties. The magnet can also be used for science experiments.


This product is the Cubarithm magnet only. The workboard and embossed cubes must be ordered separately.

Cubarithm is a braille maths teaching aid for visually impaired children or older students with learning difficulties. It helps in the teaching of arithmetic layout and, unlike paper, allows easy correction.

The weighted plastic cubes are embossed with braille signs using the upper four dots of the braille cell (dots 1, 2, 4 and 5) and an embossed line.

Arithmetical calculations are made by placing the cubes into the appropriate spaces on the partitioned board, with the desired braille character uppermost. A magnet can be used to assist in the removal of the cubes when work is completed.

This Alnico cow magnet is a strong rod magnet with rounded ends and can also be used for science experiments.


  • Recommended age: 11 years upwards
  • Due to the small size of both the cubes and magnet, we recommend that the Cubarithm is used under adult supervision.
