Maths is a key aspect of life. We use it at work, at home and even when we go shopping. Most of the time we use it without even knowing we are using it. When paying for goods and services we work out our change. When shopping we estimate the bill and at work or home for paying invoices and working out the VAT.
The digital age presents us with more numerical data than ever before. It is important therefore that young children develop sound numeracy skills. So maths remains an important vocational skill.
Having a range of maths resources for children allows scope and choice for teaching children what can often be a daunting subject.
Counting and Sorting
Engaging children in maths starts with counting, sorting and shape recognition. These products have many additional benefits for example, developing hand to eye coordination and improving gross motor skills. For example, will a child choose the giant pegs and wooden lacing beads? Or will they prefer the colourful sorting crayons and rhyme and sort rockets? Perhaps they will choose the shape sorting presents?
Shapes can be explored with an exciting, colourful and stimulating maths shape collection range.
Early Years Maths
The range of maths resources for children moves on to encompass toys and games specifically designed to teach fractions, multiplication and numbers. Numbers are fun with this lovely range of products. This range features for example number carpets to letter and number jigsaws. Also included are Cuisenaire rods to a base ten class set which is useful because it helps children understand and enjoy the delight that is maths.
