Digi-Block® Learning System
Elementary School Mathematics

As of July 2007 no studies of Digi-Block® Learning System were found that fell within the scope of the Elementary School Mathematics review protocol and met WWC design standards. Therefore, the WWC is unable to draw any research based conclusions about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of Digi-Block® Learning System to improve outcomes in this area.
M Monrad: The Digi-Block Learning System is a hands-on math manipulative program designed to supplement and improve the teaching and understanding of the base-ten number system for grades K-4. Each classroom set of Digi-Blocks consists of blocks and empty rectangular holders which hold exactly small ten blocks; each holder can be packed into larger blocks, enabling students to visualize the concept of hundreds and thousands. Through physical interaction with Digi-Block materials, students learn number sense and place value while building a foundation for later comprehension of higher math concepts in upper grades.
