Are you looking for a more durable alternative to a place value chart
made from paper or card? Read on to learn more about our multi-functional plavalmat® place value mats made from natural rubber for use with a wide range of maths resources

Robust alternative to a traditional place value chart

Unlike place value charts made from paper and card, the natural rubber in a plavalmat® offers a more durable, and re-useable alternative.

Although each plavalmat® is colour matched to White Rose Maths and Power Maths place value coding, the plavalmat® will also support pupils who use other schemes of learning.

Teacher designed for use in a wide range of maths topics

There are 5 different plavalmat® place value charts to choose from that meet the different needs of children ages 6+. 


Depending on the design, the place value column headings have whole numbers to decimals
as well as equivalent fractions and percentages.


Furthermore these robust place value mats are even more multi-functional because they also include units of measurement and money
.

 

Use with our plavalmat® place value counters and Base Ten

Use plavalmat® place value charts with a wide range of place value resources for example double sided counters, maths cubes, numicon but especially plavalmat® place value counters and Base Ten.

Moreover there is no need to use separate ten frames as the integrated design helps children with subitising and number bonds to ten and twenty.

Flexible and re-useable place value chart that is easy to store

Another important feature of plavalmat® place value mats is that although they are lightweight and flexible, they will not rip or tear easily.

Durable and Hygienic surface

Similarly to the rest of our plavalmat® range, our maths mats can be kept clean and hygienic*.  As the surface is wipeable with a damp sponge and mild detergent.

Simply add a sheet of acetate over the top to be able to use it with dry wipe markers.

Why choose a plavalmat® Place Value Mat?

It is for the following reasons why Oakfield Learning believes a plavalmat® is a better alternative to place value charts

Durable

Firstly, the hard-wearing natural rubber results in a very robust maths mat.  Moreover a thermal laminate layer has been heat sealed to the surface so it will withstand regular use in classrooms and home learning environments.

Practical, hands on learning

Secondly, in comparison with black and white printed or photocopied resources, a plavalmat® has a bright, colourful and engaging design.  The colour coding matches the White Rose Maths and Power Maths.  If school are using alternative schemes on the other hand, children can still use it with other pupil books and textbooks to help them master maths. 

Multi-functional design for use with maths resources

Thirdly, in comparison with other place value charts, a plavalmat® has column headings with the standard whole numbers and decimals.  However the most notable benefit is that the unique design has fractions with equivalent percentages, but also include units of measure and money.  For this reason, children will be able to use their to help them in many more maths topics than comparable place value charts.

Furthermore, as concrete maths manipulatives are an essential part of the maths mastery curriculum, it is vital that a pupils use a plavalmat® alongside a wide range of maths manipulatives commonly used in schools.  Consequently the design has integrated ten frames so it can be used with two sided or double sided counters, maths cubes and number frames.  In particular, plavalmat® place value counters work especially well with these colour matched place value charts.

Base Ten Mat

Above all many teachers know how difficult and time consuming it is to fit all the required place value columns on to one sheet A4 or A3 paper or card.  Due to this a further benefit is that the Thousands, Hundreds, Tens and Ones / Units columns are wide enough for a plavalmat® to use as a base ten mat.  Therefore although the mat is longer than traditional charts it is more flexible and can be rolled up and stored for future use.

Video Tutorials

Another point to note is that Oakfield Learning is in the process of creating a series of tutorial videos to demonstrate how to use our range of plavalmat® place value resources effectively to support the teaching and learning of maths.
