We are the sole UK distributor of a brilliant resource for learning and practicing maths: SumSort®
The Ultimate Maths Game
A very simple principle: match the coloured numbers and do the calculation.
Green to Green = Addition
Yellow to Yellow = Subtraction
Red to Red = Multiplication
Blue to Blue = Division
We are able to offer 8 Versions for different abilities to allow it to be clearly differentiated by task rather than outcome.
It is suitable from Foundation to Key stages 1, 2, 3, 4 and even up to HE programmes.
Ideal for learning mentor programs or with the whole class or small groups with a TA.

I have used SumSort® with the children I have been supporting at a London primary school. These children are in year 5, under achieving and totally turned off mathematics. Since using this resource as part of the programme that I am working on with them I have noticed that their engagement has improved. They always ask 'are we going to play that game (SumSort®) again today?' and when I say 'yes' they cheer! I have only been using the game for a short while but have already seen an improvement in their thinking skills (it is a game of strategy) and their ability in mental maths. Prior to using the game they were totally reliant on 'algorithms' which they didn't really understand judging by the mistakes they made and the fact that they couldn't explain what they had done.
