The Soroban abacus, number bases and logarithms.

In my blog I talked about the need for students to have a good grasp of number in order to be able to access other areas of the mathematics curriculum with confidence. I think that number bases are fascinating and should be part of the curriculum. Being able to use a variety of number bases confidently would help A-level students understand logarithms, something they always found difficult in my experience. I have compiled a list of resources from the National STEM Centre eLibrary providing ideas to aid the teaching of number bases and logarithms plus links to the websites mentioned.
