M.A.B. CREATIONS

In our maths work exploring the number system, we created sculptures using 15 M.A.B. blocks. We then had to record a number sentence showing how many units our sculpture was worth.Do you know an efficient way to count up the units for each sculpture? Leave a comment here to let us know.
