<p><img alt="football themed maths numbers" src="http://mathsticks.com/sites/default/files/football-cards.jpg" style="float:left; height:180px; width:286px" /><strong>Ok, I couldn't resist.</strong></p>
<p>Here's a simple set of 100 number cards featuring a fun football theme. The cards are clear and the 0 to 99 numerals easy to see. The font is appropriate for young children, but also 'cool' enough to be accepted by older children too. The 'cards' are versatile enough to be used in thousands of different activities and games.</p>

<p><strong>Some children find identifying odd and even numbers very tricky</strong>, while others seem to have some innate ability to recognise them. Ways to make quantities more visual, like Numicon are excellent. But, these can only go so far.</p>

<p>At times it can be difficult to give children the chance to work at their own pace on mathematical activities. If the activity isn't pitched at the right level, or if it isn't engaging, the pace can fall and learning will be affected.</p>
<p>This is a common problem, which the majority of our mathsticks resources aims to solve. However, when we road tested this latest maths resource we were in for a shock.</p>

<p><strong>Here's a very versatile idea from Jason Darley.</strong></p>
<p>The set of 12 Top Trump cards all feature Hindu Gods. The cards have numerical ratings for each of the Gods abilities - Power, Beauty, Avatars... etc.</p>
<p>They can be used in any normal Top Trump style game.</p>

<p><strong>Here's a quick maths problem with a chocolatey theme!</strong></p>
<p>The problem is based on the notion that two rectangular chocolate bars have been broken into different shapes. The children have to use the given information to rebuild the chocolate bars.</p>

<p><strong>How do you keep mental mathematics interesting? ...How do you engage children in 'estimating'? ...How do you make calculator work meaningful?</strong></p>
<p>These are all vital questions, and finding appropriate solutions can become increasingly difficult the further into Key Stage 2 you teach!</p>
