I am just about to set up my own business as an after school hours maths tutor (I am a qualified and practising teacher) and have just spent a small fortune buying the maths resources needed. I had to buy them all in Australia as that was easy at the time, but of course they all say 'Made in China' on the labels. I have searched and searched online for them but just am having zero luck! If anybody can help I would be extremely grateful!
Specifically I am after:
1. Plastic dice (have only found novelty types so far)
2. Playing cards
3. Plastic counters (have only been able to find poker chips, which aren't suitable)
4. Plastic 2D and 3D shapes (these are hugely expensive in Australia)
5. Childrens calculators
Plus any other maths-type item out there!
I've actually put a similar thread like this on here before, I got some good replies, but they were only really aimed at stationary supplies.
If anyone an help, thankyou very much!
