A squared whiteboard – which is a blank whiteboard on the other side – a whiteboard pen (colour cannot be guaranteed) perfect for graphs, a ruler and a protractor. Gives a fun introduction to geometric drawings.
Drawing and writing are often more appealing to children on a whiteboard than on paper. The grid squares are brilliant for guidance when drawing shapes, or making bar charts.
A ruler and a protractor are essentials for covering Maths in the National Curriculum for Primary School.
Below is a video of us beginning to use a ruler – we start with introducing the concepts of parallel and perpendicular lines. Creating a bit of art using straight lines as a base – making mathematical drawing inviting and creative.
