A few years back, while working for schools and public libraries throughout the country, I created a variety of educational bookmarks. Various versions of my measure / fraction / percentage bookmark design were used in many areas. These simple bookmarks were found to be a useful visual numeracy resource.
I have recently reworked the design for a local school, using ‘100 square’ graphics rather than pie-chart graphics. It’s a simple thing that might help children to visualise the concepts.
These bookmarks remind me of the happy feedback I received.

Also, I’ve contacted John Duffty at Mathsticks.com and recomposed his great Maths Bookmark idea.
Two simple bookmark designs to engage the user with numbers.
John says “the children used the questions independently and were very keen to let us know if they had found an interesting answer, or discovered a ‘fun’ number fact”.
