Dienes Blocks leverage the simple activity of 'Count and Write' that children are already comfortable with to introduce them to more complex concepts of Addition, Subtraction, Division, and Multiplication.
Developed by Zoltan Dienes, Dienes Blocks facilitate a structured learning approach by gradually progressing from single digit operations to two and three digit numbers. Understanding of the concept of Place Value of numbers plays a decisive role in children's expertise at performing these mathematical operations. Dienes Blocks help in teaching these concepts in an easy and practical way where students themselves are a part of the teaching and learning process. It is also useful for learning measurement of length, area, volume and weight .
