100 Plus Multicentre 12x
100/MC12XRegular price £959.99
The 100 Plus Maths Multicentre is an outstanding piece of hands-on maths equipment for teachers. It offers fantastic versatility and mathematical possibilities within a single piece of equipment. Widely regarded as the ultimate, multi-functional maths resource.
100 + can be changed from one number square to another in seconds by turning the individual rods which lock each of the 4 colour-coded faces at 90 degree intervals and ultimately through 360 degrees.
Each of the 132 blocks slide, rotate and lock independently through 90/360 degrees enabling grouping or splitting of numbers which in addition can be blanked using the Abacus face.
Changes to more than 10 different standard number configurations i.e.. 0 to 99, 1 to 100, 0 to 119, 1 to 120, 99 to minus 20, 100 to minus 19, multiplication, Abacus etc.
Use for division, addition, subtraction, multiplication, number bonds, grouping, number patterns, multiples, proportion, fractions and equivalent fractions, less than/more than, percentages, and many, many more maths activities
“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.
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.
Perhaps some of my best instances of the benefits of the 100+ board have been when working with S4 pupils who've just fallen further and further behind in their maths, due mainly to a paucity with number.
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.''
