Different Representations of Numbers

Different Representations of Numbers

A teaching resource provided by Luke Padley.

Resource Description

This is a bright and attractive resource which should be displayed on numeracy displays, in classrooms and in other learning environments.

Each set of hexagons represent the same number in 6 different ways:
1. Numerically 2. Written English 3. Written French or Spanish (both included) 4. Tens and Units 5. Money 6. Roman Numerals

Also included is a set of black hexagons, should you wish to extend beyond 20, or use a different language.

This resource will help children to recognise the various representations of numbers which will enable them to be more successful at making links in their learning.

Links with the 2014 National Curriculum:
