The study sought to investigate the effectiveness of using base ten materials (abacus) to enhance primary four pupils' performance in the concept of place value. In order to achieve the purpose, the quasi experimental design was used. Stratified and simple random sampling procedures were used to select a sample of 30 pupils (15 for experimental and control groups respectively) from a population of 70 pupils. Achievement test on place value was used on the groups to gather data for the study. ...
