Maths Lab – Ideas and printables

Maths Lab – A place where a maths teacher can demonstrate a lot of concepts through various interactive physical tools.

I have been searching all over the net, most of the material available is either Do it yourself (DIY), printable worksheet or Maths Lab equipment. My mind just wondered about can we add some more info and knowledge on the walls to make Lab interesting for kids. So here is my contribution;
