Flard cards are used to test mathematical bonds and to show how numbers are formed / made up.
Flard Cards teach the `numerocity` of numbers, thus establishing a solid maths foundation.
Flard cards allow children to build up numbers from and break down numbers into their constituent hundred, ten and unit elements.
Numbers included in the set are:
0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90
100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900
Maths Flard Cards/Extension Cards.
These cards are used to help learners understand the concept of place value.
• Once learners have the individual Flard Cards, get them to spread them out. As a beginning activity, they can sort the cards into their place values.
• Now they can order the cards from smallest to largest.
• Once learners are familiar with the cards, call out a number and ask them to build it up – so they can make up the number 65 using the cards. They need to begin to understand that they need the number 60 and the number 5.
• Once this concept is understood, learners can build up or break down a number. So call out 134 and they should be able to break it up into the different parts, being 100, 30 and 4
• As an extension exercise, learners can also use the Flard Cards to break up the numbers into different combinations.
