The Algebra-Decimal Inserts are smooth pieces which snap into the backs of the 10s and 100s Integer Blocks. They are used:
– to present decimals
– to illustrate polynomials
– to illustrate X, -X, X2
– to represent units, .1s (1/10s) and .01s (1/100s)
Algebra-Decimal Inserts are used along with the Integer Blocks in Zeta, Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1 Levels to enable students to understand these maths concepts concretely before progressing to abstract application and use. There are 50 pieces in all.
