About the resources
Pegs to Count Up is a fun, visual and highly tactile set of maths resources which are manipulated by children through hands on concrete experiences. The colourful, multi-sensory resources are eco-friendly and fully inclusive – an invaluable resource to support early mathematics from 3 to 11 years old.
Manipulatives help make abstract mathematical ideas concrete. They enable children to construct physical models to learn the fundamentals of mathematics, but also help children in structuring their own problem solving and enquiry, thus supporting a mastery approach.
Pegs to Count Up works seamlessly with a range of other maths resources and can be used right from the early years where exploratory play builds familiarity with the manipulatives, right through to the end of primary when it can be used to teach specific concepts within the curriculum or for intervention programmes for children struggling with maths.
