Base 10 manipulatives are expensive and take up a lot of room in the class. Math Mats allow every student in your class to "see and play" with large numbers when adding and subtracting. Students will cement their understanding of regrouping and place value without the fuss of those clunky blocks!
This Math Mat is designed to be a tool for students to visually explore numbers and discover various ways. Mats can be laminated or sandwiched between contact paper to be used with dry erase pens. No more worksheets and expensive place value manipulatives! Students can use the mats every day for the full year.
When students use the mats, it is easy for them to keep track of their thinking and show the teacher their process to arrive at a solution.
