rods are a collection of rectangular rods in 10 lengths and 10 colors, each
color corresponding to a different length. Learners can explore whole numbers,
fractions, measurement, ratio, area, perimeter, symmetry, congruence,
three-dimensional geometry, patterns, and functions. They allow a concrete way
of looking a math, and are available in both wood and plastic. We recommend the
small group set because, though 155 sounds like a big number, it really isn't.
Having that amount is most useful.

Ten Starter Set - The Base Ten Blocks in this box are materials so
structured that their use establishes concepts related to the base ten number
system. Since each component is a multiple of the next larger by a factor of 10,
the blocks form a very good model of our base 10 numeration system.
blocks can be used in a variety of ways. A child's free play with them can
establish foundations for understanding place value in written numerals. Models
for all operations with whole numbers and decimals can be made. Geometric
concepts of area, volume and metric measurement can also be demonstrated. No
manipulative can demonstrate more clearly the concept of place value and
This beginning base ten set includes 100 units, 30 rods, 10
flats, one cube and Teaching Guide.
