These rods are often called Cuisenaire Rods. In Equatio mathspace, they can be accessed by clicking on Shapes, and then more Shapes. At the top, click in the box that says "Find Shape." Type in Counting Rods and hit enter on your keyboard. You will be given the option to select rods, with or without markings. Selecting the rods with markings will allow you to click on each cube within a rod.
