MAB - Class Set - Plastic
Description / MAB - Class Set - Plastic
This extensive class set comprises over 1000 plastic MAB manipulatives and complementary resources. MAB is a base ten system with which you can teach a wide variety of topics, but it’s especially useful when conveying place value and related themes. Ten singular ‘units’ make up one ‘long’. Ten longs make up one ‘flat’. And ten flats form a ten-by-ten cube.
In this set, you’ll find all the base ten components, as well as a transparent cube, activity book, and place value mat. The mat is ideal for adding further clarity to visual demonstrations.
Base Ten book
Base Ten Blocks, written by Dr Paul Swan, is an invaluable addition to the class set. It makes teaching base ten simpler with over 30 tailored activities. It’ll enable you to convey place value, arithmetic, fractions, percentages, money maths, and so much more, with a variety of engaging activities. Each page contains clear, easy-to-follow instructions, diagrams, and reference to the activity’s links with the Australian curriculum.
A transparent cube is provided, into which you can stack units, longs, and flats to clearly demonstrate that the parts make up a whole.
All components fit neatly into the included Gratnells jumbo tray. It makes packing away after lessons much simpler, and allows you to store all of your MAB manipulatives together in the classroom.
The base ten system can be applied to teach foundational counting and number sense, through to tricky ideas like fractions and division. Students will benefit from using the tactile plastic pieces to problem-solve their way to better understanding. Easily enough resources to allow children to work individually or in small groups. Also available as a wooden set.
