Did you know that 3-6% of the population present with dyscalculia and this severely impacts their learning of maths?
Some signs of dyscalculia:
1. Inability to tell which of two numbers is larger
2. Frequent difficulties with arithmetic signs
3. Reliance on using fingers to count rather than mental strategies
4. Difficulty with money and time
5. Difficulty with estimating
Did you know that you can now take an assessment that helps detect if it is developmetal dyscalculia or maths developmental delays?
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.
Abaco 100 gives meaning to numbers, number value and their sequence. Pupils
are able to actively engage their visio-spatial skills to identify numbers within a grid of 100 - a brilliant way to build visual memory skills whilst comparing, sequencing
and solving problems. Single digit and double digit addition and subtraction now
becomes easy to visualise.
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 brilliant self-learning board that helps pupils visualise, practice, remember and
recall their times-tables using the Super Roll. Patterns jump out and pupils can test
each other’s times tables knowledge with the assurance that the answer can be
discovered under the sliding Super Roll. Once the times-table knowledge is secure,
you may want to look at www.multistepmaths.co.uk and request a 14 day trial of the
online programme that contextualises times-tables ready for a classroom test.
