Des Rainey’s Number-Family Maths is an award-winning set of teaching methods that takes children into almost all areas of early maths (K-2). It combines brilliantly with the Number Stick. This is an 'exploration tool' or sort of fun abacus, that lets children build all sorts of maths models.  Children and teachers LOVE IT. See further teacher and parent information.
