This complete kit is designed around the base 10 principle. Particularly useful in number and calculation activities, pupils will more readily understand the concepts of numbers, multiplication, fractions, arithmetic and, eventually, volume. To help understand the decimal system, each group of elements (unit: 1 cm³ cube, ten: 10 cm³ stick, etc.) is identified by a single colour.
1 1000 cube, 10 100 sheets, 50 10 bars and 100 unit cubes.

What the expert says: “When working with children with dyscalculia (or who struggle with maths), I like using material inspired by the Montessori method (coloured beads, numbers to build and base 10 wooden cubes). This hands-on multi-sensory (visual, tactile, kinesthetic) approach introduces mathematical concepts in a very progressive manner. From final year pre-school to final year primary school.” Leni Cassagnettes, Miss E and blogger at Maîtresseuh.
