Bring numbers to life with Augmented Reality!

Use these ‘no preparation’ worksheets to combine the teaching of basic maths concepts with simple use of new technology. Most importantly, these sheets encourage children to pick up a pen and write, before they pick up a tablet. Studies show that when numbers and letters are handwritten children show greater memory retention.


How do they work?


  1. Download and print the pdf file
  2. Download the Narrator AR app   AppStore     GooglePlay


  1. Trace the number
  2. Hold the app over the page to watch the number animate in AR. Animations illustrate correct number formation.
