Extend mental methods for whole-number calculations, for example to multiply a two-digit number by a one-digit number (e.g. 12 x 9), to multiply by 25 (e.g. 16 x 25), to subtract one near-multiple of 1000 from another
|Placing Calculations on a Number Line||
Place the answer to calculations on a number line. An enormous array of choice. Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Ranging from adding numbers to 10 to multiplying 4 digit numbers. Great for combining teaching calculations and approximations with developing an understanding of place value.
|Balancing scales - convert between g and kg||
The scale is loaded with between 1 and 4 weights. The user then has to balance the scales, converting between g and kg in the process. There is a great deal of control over the level.
A great starter to explore addition, subtraction / difference and partitioning as well as the relationship between grams and kilog More…rams. Levels include converting whole kg to g (and vice versa), converting fractions of kg (eg 1/4kg = 250g) and weights in kg to 1 and 2 decimal places.
|Balancing Scales g and kg||
Add weights to either pan until they are balanced. Can be used to teach addition, subtraction, partitioning, and mass, as well as developing an understanding of the equals sign.
Find the missing number to balance the calculations. An excellent tool for reinforcing an understanding of the role of the equals sign. Choose one objective, or many. You can choose all the objectives for a single year group (or multiple year groups). You can also choose to balance between different types of calculations (eg subtraction and division)
|Representing Multiplication - arrays and number lines||
Represents multiplication using an array and by jumping on a number line. Great for developing an understanding of multiplication by partitioning.
