Testimonials

Tom Renwick from Maths on Track shares his experience: "I meet and work with about 2000 teachers a year, and it's my job to seek out resources and techniques that work well for numeracy. The 100+ board is perhaps the best thing I've come across in helping children 'map with numbers', and have now worked in over 100 schools with this board, training teachers on its uses by visiting each class and working with the children in situ."

He adds: "Kids really go for the idea that if they have this board in their 'heads' then they will be good with numbers - they see this as being manageable and attainable. After 40 minutes of number pattern activities and associated sums, you can see them waking up to the idea that numbers aren't that difficult after all. 'Mapping with numbers' makes sense, and after all, the password for maths is pattern."
