This kit includes 10 differently colored “sticks”, each a different length with each length representing a different value ranging from 1 to 10.
The smallest block is the white cube, representing the value 1. The white cube fits perfectly inside each other stick: it fits twice into the red stick representing 2, it fits three times into the light green stick representing 3, etc.
These number sticks are a great tool for discussing topics such as:
- Addition & Subtraction
- Multiplication & Division
- Number decomposition
- Place Holders
- Bar models
- and Patterns
Exploring these topics using these blocks can also help your child develop problem solving and spatial reasoning skills!
