Synopsis

Mental Arithmetic Introductory Book by Lynn Spavin

Mental Arithmetic provides rich and varied practice to develop pupils' essential maths skills and prepare them for all aspects of the Key Stage 2 national tests. It may also be used as preparation for the 11+, and with older students for consolidation and recovery.Tailored to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum for primary mathematics, each book contains 36 one-page tests designed to build confidence and fluency and keep skills sharp. Each test is presented in a unique three-part format comprising: questions where use of language is kept to a minimum; questions using number vocabulary; questions focusing on one- and two-step word problems.Structured according to ability rather than age, the series allows children to work at their own pace, building confidence and fluency. Two Entry Tests are available in the Mental Arithmetic Teacher's Guide and on the Schofield & Sims website, enabling teachers, parents and tutors to select the appropriate book for each child. All the books can be used flexibly for individual, paired, group or whole-class maths practice, as well as for homework and one-to-one intervention.The Mental Arithmetic Introductory Book acts as a bridge from Key Stage 1, covering all four number operations, as well as sequences and simple money problems. Three Achievement Charts are also provided to monitor progress as pupils work through the book, while additional Just Facts questions provide further practice of key maths facts. A separate accompanying answer book, Mental Arithmetic Introductory Book Answers contains correct answers to all the questions, making marking quick and easy.
