Base 10 Classroom Set (Interlocking)
Base 10 Classroom blocks are a mathematical manipulative used by students to practice early maths concepts. The blocks can be used to teach and reinforce addition, subtraction, number sense, place value and counting. This unique starter set of base ten components conveniently interlocks.
Base 10 refers to the numbering system in common use. Take a number like 475, base ten refers to the position, the 5 is in the one’s place, the 7 is in the ten’s place and the 4 is in the hundred’s place. Each number is 10 times the value to the right of it, hence the term base 10. The numbers continue indefinitely in this pattern: 100000,10000,1000,100,10,1 0.1, 0.01, 0.001, 0.0001, 0.00001
Base 10 blocks are popular in junior school mathematics instruction. They are frequently used in the classroom by teachers to model maths concepts, as well as by children to reinforce their own understanding of said concepts. Physically manipulating objects is an important technique used in learning basic mathematic principles, particularly at the early stages of cognitive development. Studies have shown that their use, like that of most mathematical manipulatives, decreases as students move into higher grades.
Physically manipulating objects is an important technique used in learning basic mathematical principles, particularly at the early stages of cognitive development. The hands-on interactive blocks enable students to manipulate and visualize varying quantities with ease. More advanced students can explore spatial relationships and volume.
