MAB - Longs - Wood (100)
Description / MAB - Longs - Wood (100)
MAB ‘Longs’ form a component of the base ten system, whereby ten single units form one long, and ten longs form one ‘flat’. With use alongside the units, flats, and cube, it’s possible to explain place value in a clear and accessible format. However, longs could also be applied to teach addition, subtraction, counting, and basic number sense using multiples of ten.
Smooth wooden blocks
Made from a smooth, tactile wood, the longs are ideal for safe use by young children. Each have indents at regular intervals to make clear that they’re made up of ten equal parts. The longs are fused and therefore cannot be dismantled. All 100 supplied are uniform in size, shape, and colour.
Engaging in tricky topics
A system like MAB is perfect for engaging students in topics they may find challenging. A practical resource that children can pick up and manipulate alongside other pieces helps them to make connections between the ideas being taught.
A supply of 100 longs is perfect for a classroom environment, where they can be shared amongst students either for individual or small group work.
In full, this set contains 100x MAB longs.
Each piece measures L 100mm x W 10mm x H 10mm.
