Representing numbers with Multilink

Reception and Year 6 used Multilink today. these are coloured cubes that click together which we use to represent numbers!

Reception used the Multilink cubes for addition. Using the cubes, the children could quickly add sums and see how much they need to click together to make a total!

Year 6 used the Multilink to represent different numbers for example 1 cube equals the number 2 instead of 1! They also experimented with whole numbers and decimals so 10 cubes are equal to 1 with each cube being equal to 0.1.
