# 200 Rectangular Grid

## What is the resource?

This PDF provides a large grid with 200 identical squares arranged in rows and columns. Ideal for learners across primary/early secondary levels.

## Why are rectangular grids important?

They have multiple uses as learning tools and appear in countless real-life contexts:

- Area concept: Each square is one unit; this builds an understanding of what 'area' means.
- Multiplication arrays: Grids visualise rows and columns – core to grasping times tables.
- Data organisation: Charts, tables, pixels (even spreadsheets) rely on this arrangement.
- Mapping basics: Reading coordinates on a grid teaches early graphing and directional skills.

## Why is this resource helpful?

The simple format opens it up to use in a wide range of learning situations:

- Number exploration: Skip counting, prime hunting... 200 squares offer lots of space!
- Patterning & symmetry: Kids can build designs, investigate reflections, find rules... visually.
- Fraction concepts: Shading rows/columns reveals parts of the whole, comparing pieces clearly.
- Printable PDF: Allows teachers to provide endless individual grids for any level task.

This grid helps link number-based and visual areas of maths. This strengthens conceptual understanding and supports varied problem-solving skills.
