Decipipes or Linear Algebra Blocks are a useful maths resource for teachers used in class to teach concepts such as adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing and rounding decimals. Learning to work with decimals is an important part of maths education as they are used where more precision is required than whole numbers can provide.

Teaching primary mathematics

Students must develop a flexible, replicable understanding of mathematics rather than relying on lucky guesses for the correct answers. However, many students need help grasping mathematical concepts. A lack of maths knowledge can hold students back as they progress from primary into secondary education, where much of the maths curriculum revolves around multiplication and division in concepts like percentages, ratios, and algebra.

Ask compelling mathematical questions and don’t rush to give students the answer - give your students time to be challenged.
Blue multiplication symbol.
Don’t be threatened by not knowing the answer. It only teaches your students that not knowing is not a failure.
Yellow division symbol.
Create space for mathematical conversation and debate.
Green subtraction symbol.
Encourage your students to speak up without fearing being judged for being wrong.
Blue multiplication symbol.
Maths isn’t about rules and formulas. It’s about playing and exploring, looking for clues and research. So be inventive and encourage students to play.

What people have said about Maths Heroes

  • Excellent maths resources - highly recommended. I purchased the Multiplicative Thinking Blocks™ to use with my higher maths group. They have done plenty of counting pattern work, but the blocks helped them draw relationships to ‘arrays’ and ‘split arrays’. The students loved the blocks and ‘got it’ straight away. For at least one child, I think it was the first time they had made an explicit link relating multiplication facts to arrays.

  • Thank you for running the professional development for teachers workshop and Multiplicative Thinking Blocks™ showcase. I enjoyed the day and implemented your maths resources with my team this morning - we're all excited to use it when teaching maths.
