Primary Mathematics is an ITV schools TV series from the 1960s, covering Mathematics for primary school pupils.
A mathematics series presented by Gordon Luck, taking subjects which are familiar to junior-age children such as money, the weather and train sets, to show how maths is relevant in all areas of life.
An episode about decimal coinage was added towards the end of the programme's run (originally meant for autumn 1966, it was eventually broadcast in summer 1967). At the time the programme was made it was known that Britain would be decimalised in 1970, but not what the names & design of the coins would be, so the programme simply covered the general idea of paying All in Tens.
