Interlocking Base Ten Blocks

Item: 706406114456

Ages: Grades 2 - 5

Contents: 121 plastic pieces

Teach numerical value, place value, equivalent value, and rounding with this plastic Interlocking Base Ten Blocks.

The Base 10 Number Concepts Set is designed to introduce and reinforce the "ten-ness" of the decimal system of numeration. Implicit in the numeration system is grouping by ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands. A student can see and feel this concept in action by grouping and trading base 10 blocks for their equivalent values. Abstract numerical values can be easily displayed using these concrete models. Students will also be able to make comparisons between different constructions and order the constructions based upon their numerical velues.

The Interlocking Base Ten Blocks includes:

  • 100 cubes (1 cm x 1 cm x 1 cm)
  • 10 rods (10 cm x 1 cm x 1 cm)
  • 10 flats (10 cm x 10 cm x 1 cm)
  • 1 block (10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm)
  • an activity sheet

The contents of the set permit constructions to be made to a numerical value of 2,200. The size relationships between blocks help students comprehend, in concrete terms, the relationship among numerical values in the base 10 numeration system.

The Interlocking Base Ten Blocks is appropriate for individual or small group work and for classroom demonstrations. It can be used to illustrate numeration for primary grade students and to further reinforce number concepts as new lessons are introduced. Base 10 materials are also valuable to use with older students who need concrete objects to represent abstract numerical concepts.
