Very Basic Operations Kit

Mortensen Math Very Basic Operations Kit
Very Basic Ops Kit plus blue Ten Thousand Square

Showing how to factor a polynomial with Mortensen Math base ten blocks.
To find the factors build the rectangle and count the sides.

The Very Basic Ops Kit contains smaller scale materials that allow for the study of higher power algebra, larger base 10 operations, and decimals. The photo on the right above could just as easily depict (100+20+1)(10+1)=1,331 but on this second day of working with the basic ops kit we worked on some third power algebra.

  • twenty-five green units
  • twenty blue 10/x bars
  • ten red 100/x2 squares
  • ten red 100/x2 strips
  • ten green 1000/x3 bars

The blue 10,000/x4 square is an add on to the kit.
