Welcome to the Cuisenaire® Company website

We are the original producers and distributors of the Cuisenaire® Rods since 1954, and the publishers of the books for teachers and students by Dr Caleb Gattegno and Mme Madeleine Goutard. Here you will find videos of children working on mathematics; details of the sets of Rods and the texts available as well as numerous other resources for anyone wishing to know more about this versatile, multifaceted tool for the study of mathematics.
