CanDo 21 Teacher Pack – Mats and Practice
This unique resource focuses on the importance of a common multiple and its two factors, hence giving access to many other related facts. “If I know that 54 has the common factors 6 and 9 then I know …”
Each of the 21 mats provides a ‘big maths’ approach to draw, divide, derive and deepen.
Encourage children to add to the mat throughout the week or focus on one quadrant at a time. Jot on the mat independently or use it on screen for whole class discussion – a truly versatile and innovative resource

Each tetrahedron is made of 300gsm card with the 21 facts triangle on the three visible faces.
