Base 10 is a fundamental system in our modern mathematical system. Children can easily be introduced to working with 10s by using the individual 10 sticks, 100 boards, or cubes of 1000 units. Not only will children enjoy seeing how cubes are proportional, but they will develop the ability to calculate, classify, measure and compare. In addition to seeing the structure and size of certain numbers, decimal blocks can be used to demonstrate logical operators like addition and subtraction. For older children the idea of carry and borrow can be introduced.
