Manipulatives:
Base Ten Blocks
 Manipulatives provide concrete
representation of mathematical concepts.
 By giving students handson
experience with the math concepts, students are able to transfer what
they have learned to paper and pencil processes.
 Addition, subtraction, division
and multiplication concepts can be reinforced with base ten blocks.
 Here, they are being used
to provide a visual and conceptual representation of doubledigit multiplication.
