Number Jigsaws
These excellent jigsaws are designed by an ex-maths teacher and it shows. Each one is well thought out, sturdy and useful.

The Number Ladder Price 6.95
This gives practice in ordering the numbers from 1 to 20. It can be made up as one long ladder or two short ones side by side - one from 1-10 and the other from 11-20. The latter technique helps show the relationship betwen 1 and 11, 2 and 12, etc and the numbers are colour coded to reinforce this. This well thought out jigsaw is one of the few items I have found which deal with the teen numbers and is very useful with young children and with older ones with special needs.  

The Hundred Square
Price 19.95
A hundred square is a common enough piece of equipment in the classroom these days but this one is different because it's a jigsaw. Each number is on a separate piece and they can only be fitted together in the correct way. The jigsaw fits into a tray which makes it easy to move while partly finished and there is a poster of the finished puzzle which fits inside the tray for children who find it hard to place the pieces correctly. This is a good way of helping children learn the order and pattern of the numbers up to 100. Good for a group activity and useful for older children who find maths difficult.

Multiplication Tables       

8.95 for one
65.00 for a set 

There is a different jigsaw for each of the tables and each one fits into its own tray. All the questions (eg 3x2) and answers (eg =6) are on individual pieces so children have to order the questions as well as answering them. Useful for children learning their tables who already understand what multiplication means.
