We have been developing our Number Sense by solving Mathematical problems. The students were encouraged to use Base 10 Blocks and numbers to show their reasoning/thinking.

Oscar used 7 base-ten blocks to create a number. What are some different numbers he may have created? ​

7 Base 10 Blocks

Peter and Sarah were using place value materials to model numbers. Peter used 3 hundreds, 2 tens, and 4 ones. Sara used 2 hundreds, 12 tens, and 4 ones. Did Peter and Sarah show the same number?

Peter and Sarah

Are 7 hundreds, 3 tens, and 5 ones the same as 5 hundreds, 3 tens, and 7 ones? How do you know?

Here are a few more Maths Problems:
