Number Pieces

A place value activity using base 10 (Dienes) blocks

  • Add and manipulate pieces (ones, tens, and hundreds).
  • Join pieces in groups of ten or break them apart (e.g., 10 ones into 1 ten and vice versa).
  • Choose from three different colors to clearly identify groups or pieces.
  • Move, rotate, and duplicate pieces individually or as a group.
  • Use the drawing tools to label representations and show understanding.
  • Write equations and expressions with the text tool.
  • Use the expanding edge piece like a measuring tape to show the dimensions of arrays created with the pieces.
  • Zoom and scroll to work with larger collections of pieces.
