Beginning of Base 10

Saturday April 5, 2014

Base 10 concepts begin in Kindergarten. At this early age, base 10 refers to the ability to understand that in a number like 12, the one represents 1 ten or 10 ones, it no longer is the same as 1 when 1 is in isolation. It is also showing the ability to count onward when 10 is recognized, looking at a group of 10 and automatically knowing to count up to determine how many there are when there is a group of 10 and 5 more or 6 more.

Although this concept sounds simple, it's quite difficult for new learners. This article focuses on teaching strategies for the kindergarten learner, using the Common Core Standards for understanding and decomposing numbers from m11 to 19.
