Detailed Description

Flexitables are no ordinary multiplication tables or numeracy charts as they are tactile and made of soft flexible plastic. This low tech approach to maths teaching resources is an effective way of boosting numeracy.

It is vital that children know the basic principles of maths – how to multiply and divide, how to add and subtract – and Flexitable grids and multiplication tables (times tables) can help every pupil to learn and remember them.

  • Are you a parent who wants to help their children improve their maths?

  • Are you a teacher looking for a low cost proven maths resource?

  • Are you a Special Needs teacher working with Autistic or Dyslexic pupils who wants an easy to use manipulative product that also helps improve hand/eye/brain co-ordination?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions then have a look around our site to discover more about our numeracy products including flexible multiplication tables (times tables).

The Flexitable programme consists of a multiplication )times tables) now available as a 1 - 10 table and the new 1 - 12 table, an addition, a number and a fraction/decimal grid all printed on soft flexible plastic that has vertical and horizontal channels allowing children to continuously fold them again and again. Flexitables have a far greater life than paper or cardboard products.

Flexitables are tactile and children love manipulating them when trying to discover the answers. They are particularly useful for teaching pupils with special needs (e.g. Dyslexia) as they can be taught on a “one-to-one basis” at their own speed.

Times Educational Supplement May 2007 reported: -

Creative pupils need creative teachers. Creative teachers need creative resources. They also need simple ones that contribute effectively to learning.

So when it comes to teaching numbers, Flexitables are a resource worth getting your hands on. They are folding soft plastic number grids for helping children get to grips with number operations, fractions, percentages and decimals.

We already use number grids, of course. The children stick them in the back of their maths books and we use them on the interactive whiteboard. The difference is that Flexitables are made of soft, pliable PVC that children can touch, hold and manipulate. These conceptual tools are fun to use and give children a sense of control and ownership of numbers.

They have a personal touch about them that children will enjoy. They allow pupils to play with numbers and get to know them better. And they have a great shelf life because they won't end up being torn or thrown away.

So, how can a Flexitable compete with a multimedia number grid? Well, they don't have to square up to each other. They can work hand in hand and contribute to different learning styles. And this affordable resource would make an ideal addition to a maths kit. Each grid comes with a set of well written and comprehensive user notes.
