Math toolbox


A set of printable resources that can help your child as they learn math. Keep them on hand for whenever your child might need them.

While math is amazing (I may be biased), there is no denying that there is a lot of it for children to learn. Each school year packs a lot of math into the curriculum with many new concepts, strategies, written methods and math facts for children to get to grips with.

That’s why I believe that every child needs a math tool box to help them along the way.

What do I mean by a math tool box? Basically, I mean a collection of math resources (or math ‘tools’) that children can use and refer to as and when they need. These resources could be visual aids, charts, tables, or even printable math manipulatives.

Math tools like this can come in useful in a variety of different situations. For example, a visual aid can prove invaluable for explaining a new math concept (a picture speaks a thousand words, and all that…).

Likewise, charts can be helpful for children learning or revising math facts. For example, our basic multiplication charts shows children all their multiplication facts up to 10 x 10 or 12 x 12, all on one single piece of paper!

Not everyone finds math easy, so having a selection of these resources to hand can help children tackle math with a little extra confidence.

Maybe you are in need of some of these resources for your child. If so, you can see our selection of printable math ‘tools’ and resources below with links to the posts where you can find them.

I hope you find them helpful.
