100 plus multi centre 12x

Suitable for: 3+

This invaluable and ingenious, multipurpose “ HANDS ON ” resource, has for many years proved itself in the classroom and continues to be a great success with teachers and children. 100plus is ideal for many maths activities which allow children to investigate, whilst improving mental maths agility. 100plus engages children, saves valuable classroom time and helps to enhance teacher/pupil interaction.Combining 9 different “square” confi gurations plus an Abacus/ blank into one piece of large mathematical equipment, 100plus eliminates the need for numerous resources.

100plus™ contains colour coded printed blocks which rotate and slide individually enabling the choice of configuration you wish to use. Conceal, reveal, split or group numbers instantly. Each block slots in at 90 degree increments to a full 360 degrees and each of the rows rotate individually at 90 degree increments to 360 degrees. Supplied with Teachers notes.

“The 100+ board from EDUK8 Worldwide is simply the best single resource I’ve encountered for promoting good numeracy skills.

It is ideal for visual / concrete learners (often over half the class) and for interactive teaching, and can be used with early primary stage right through to early secondary – pupils can readily grasp the concept that ‘if they had the whole board in their head they would be fantastic with numbers’.

Research indicates that early stage pupils benefit greatly from seeing and working with the bigger picture (to 100) as well as employing number lines as a context for addition and subtraction – the 100+ board is excellent on both counts.

Upper stage pupils can use the 100+ board to readily compare fractions in the context of percentages.

It can be used for showing pattern (the pass word for mathematics), carrying out addition, subtraction, multiplication and division (including remainders), fractions and percentages. A creative teacher will also invent games such as ‘bus driver’, ‘guess’, ‘shuffle’ that can be adapted for any stage.

It’s my experience that when teachers actually see what this board can do for numeracy there is a high demand for them being able to use one themselves.

I regard the mini 100+ as being like a calculator that the pupils have to make get the answer, and each time they use it then more of the board is going into their head and it may be a surprise to realise that both the 100+ and the mini 100+ can be used as class lesson resource by the teacher, or, individually by pupils.

I cannot recommend tis resource highly enough”
