Everyday maths requires the use of base ten as an anchor to further a pupil's computational skills. These resources will support you to show and practice bonds of ten, simple addition, subtraction and mental maths.
The visual and interactive The visual and interactive Abaco 10 supports pupils with non-symbolic counting.
The three colours on the Super Roll act as counters and it visually engages the pupil
to start developing the important skills of subtising and then counting. This lays the
foundation for comparing quantities and estimating.
A perfect way for pupils to engage their visio-spatial skills within a grid of 100.
Non-symbolic positioning helps the pupil to recognise quantities and learn the vital
skills of comparing and estimating.
Abaco 20 introduces numbers from 1 to 20. It gives meaning to the numbers, their
value and ordering positions. Forwards and backwards in 1s, 2s… is meaningful
and memorable as pupils illustrate their understanding by flicking the Super Roll
simultaneously. Pupils identify with the patterns and with practice this provides a
perfect model for simple single digit addition, subtraction and mental maths.
The array of counters with the gliding balls arranged in a non-symbolic setting helps
with observing patterns and sets of 2s, 5s and 10s. Comparative vocabulary such
as more, less, and fewer can be introduced. You can also start developing important
estimating skills in readiness for bigger numbers.
A collection of simple number games that turn the Abaco 100 with numbers - Red & Blue into a board game. A learner can roll the dice, challenge each other. A useful tool to increasing a learner’s confidence in using numbers up to 100.
Contents: 100 number cards, 6 joker cards, 2 dice and 30 playing pieces.
Each bar of the abacus consists of 5 white beads and 5 red beads. The colours are reversed in the final five rows.
This is a useful resource in providing a model that can be used by learners to count to 10 and 100.
Plastic blocks that provide a physical representation of the relationship between units, tens, hundreds and thousands and allow learners to visualise numbers in terms of what they are made up of.
Pack (131pcs) consists of 100 units blocks, 20 tens rods, 10 hundred squares and 1 thousand cube.
Easy to use and visualise. Hundred Bead String with ten white and ten red beads in sequence.
