5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant fraction, decimal and percentage visual aid., 25 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this visual aid. It is great for demonstrating concepts such as 2 x 1/3 = 2/3 whereas 2/2 x 1/3 = 2/6. It is easy to show that 1/3 = 2/6. It is adult enough to be used with GCSE students and has been a wonderful tool for explaining concepts of fractions and decimals to students who need to visualise what they are learning if they are to grasp the principles. It makes explanations of how to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions much easier. The colours are great!

This product has visually appealing colours and is useful for explaining concepts such as units, tens, hundreds and thousands or ones, tenths, hundredths and thousandths. It can also be used to demonstrate division concepts. It is very helpful for students from very young right up to GCSE who need to visualise mathematical concepts if they are to grasp them. There is one big block, 10 flat plates, 10 sticks and 30 small cubes.

This review is from: Emma [DVD] (DVD)
This version of Emma was well cast and captured the storyline and characters from the book accurately. It is my favourite screen version of Emma by a long chalk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Four Rules of Number book 1, 23 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an old fashioned book which provides excellent practice for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. There are lots and lots of gradually graded calculations which are very good for those people who need lots of practice to get the hang of what they are doing. The book is in black print with no pictures but the contents provide a really good foundation of basic mathematics.
