A useful visual aid containing 54 hexagonal beads that can be placed on the removable spikes to illustrate place value and simple number concepts. Designed to complement our other place value resources such as counters and base ten, it offers continuity when teaching place value. The abacus is excellent for teaching place value from its simplest form of tens and units to more complex numbers up to 9999, even including decimals.
Great as a way of visually representing how adding or subtracting numbers from each column can change the value of individual digits.
Save when you buy the Group Pack (6pk) and the Class Pack (15pk).

I like the way in which you can join them together to make larger values.
