Child's Play Maths is designed to introduce maths concepts to children from the age of 5 years through to the age of 11 years. It can equally be used as an effective 'catch-up' programme for older children or adults who struggled to grasp maths concepts the first time round.
Unit 9: Staircases: Why Staircases are very potent mathematical constructions.
Unit 10: Mental Agility: An important ability to develop for later work, for example, with fractions and graphs.
Unit 11: Extended Staircases: Staircases can be extended beyond the first ten steps just as numbers can extend beyond ten to infinity.
Unit 12: Preparation for Multiplication: Each multiplication table has a distinct pattern that can be revealed by the rods.
Also included are the accompanying PPT Presentations that comprise part of each video.
Four new videos plus the PPT Presentations will be added each month. Together they comprise a full years course.
