We have designed the Strategy Mats to provide a tool for students when working on developing fluency with number facts. From our observations students need visual aide-memoires, reminders of what they have been learning and prompts to use the strategies learnt.

The mat is double-sided with the first side providing quick reminders and the reverse showing examples of the See it – Say it – Show it steps that typify the way in which Natural Maths strategies can be used.

The mat is specifically designed to support Conceptual Subitizing: Laying the Foundations for Mental Computation and Visual Scaffolds for Early Mental Computation. It is also intended as a reminder to students that they should choose the most appropriate strategy when faced with an addition and not always rely on a single strategy such as count all.

This multiplication mat supports the teaching of Year 2: ACMNA031 and ACMNA032, Year 3: ACMNA056 and ACMNA057, Year 4: ACMNA075.
