Learners in grades Kindergarten through twelfth can use base blocks for a variety of math concepts. This manipulative can be used in the early grades for learning basic concepts of addition and subtraction, while older students can use base blocks for counting numbers in a variety of bases (thousands, hundreds, tens, ones). While exploring The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives, it showed how students can use base blocks for learning a variety of concepts just by dragging or clicking on the blocks they need. They are then able to use the base blocks to add, subtract, or count to large numbers.
