Student Bead Strings - 20 Beads (Pack of 15)
Description / Student Bead Strings - 20 Beads (Pack of 15)
Bead strings are a consistently popular resource for teaching mathematics. Their potential applications are wide ranging, from counting and number recognition, through to equivalence, place value, ratio, and estimation.
On each string are 20 smooth spherical plastic beads. They slide readily along the thick black cord, which has a knot at each end to prevent the beads falling off.
The beads are in distinct sets of five, alternating vibrant red with white. This system allows clear differentiation between the sets of five.
Children could try skip counting forwards and backwards using the beads, estimating, and testing the outcomes of basic sums, or create patterns/sequences. With fifteen provided, there are enough bead strings for classwork in pairs, or for individual use in smaller groups.
In full, this product contains: 15x Student bead strings (20 beads each).
Each string measures approximately L 40mm. The beads are 10mm.
