The Magic of the Matrix Practise Arithmetic While Having Fun! by Ian Ward


The Magic of the Matrix Practise Arithmetic While Having Fun! by Ian Ward

Children love magic numbers. They love to solve them - and to mystify family and each other with them. This book contains various magic matrices that can be solved by children in the primary school. Most focus upon addition, with variations for decimals, fractions and some multiplication matrices. They are aimed at Year 3 to Year 6 children. The intention is to make mathematics and addition a positive experience by showing children how to work with the matrices and how to construct their own. A teacher or parent can also create further matrices for the children at the appropriate level.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
