**Ten Joined Cubes (The 4 Number Operations)**

1

We make a stick of ten joined cubes.

We get four more and join them to it.

Then we count on from where we were:

Ten plus four more: that equals fourteen.

We can do

**addition**with the cubes and write it.

We can use the cubes and

write down ten plus four equals fourteen. (10 + 4 = 14)

Yes it does. Yes it does. Yes it does. Yes it does.

2

We make a stick of ten joined cubes.

We take off one and count the cubes left.

We count that there are nine cubes left:

Ten minus one is what we just did

**.**

We can do

**subtraction**with the cubes and write it.

We can use the cubes and write ten minus one equals nine. (10 − 1 = 9)

Yes it does. Yes it does. Yes it does. Yes it does.

3

We make a stick of ten joined cubes.

We make two more sticks, each with ten in.

We see our three lots of joined cubes

and understand three tens are thirty:

Do

**multiplication**with the cubes and write it.

We can use the cubes and

write down three times ten equals thirty. (3 × 10 = 30)

Yes it does. Yes it does. Yes it does. Yes it does.

4

We make a stick of ten joined cubes.

We break that stick in two: make two fives.

We see that ten divided by two

gives us the answer five - we see it!

We can do

**division**with the cubes and write it:

use the cubes and write that ten divided by two equals five. (10 ÷ 2 = 5)

Yes it does. Yes it does. Yes it does. Yes it does.

Cubes help do

**addition**.

Cubes help do

**subtraction**

and

**multiplication**.

Cubes can help us do

**division**, too.
