First Mental Arithmetic Book 4 by Ann Montague-Smith


First Mental Arithmetic Book 4 by Ann Montague-Smith

First Mental Arithmetic provides carefully graded questions that develop children's essential mathematics skills. A downwards extension of the Schofield & Sims bestseller Mental Arithmetic, the series comprises three workbooks for Year 1 (Books 1 to 3) and three for Year 2 (Books 4 to 6). The term 'mental arithmetic' is usually associated with spoken questions. However, children using all the Schofield and Sims Mental Arithmetic materials read the questions themselves and write down their answers. A Language of Maths glossary helps to develop children's number vocabulary and three Check-ups assess children's understanding. The separate First Mental Arithmetic Answers provides answers to all questions contained in this book, plus additional resources for teachers. Book 4 includes: reading and writing two digit numbers, multiplication and division, halves, quarters and three-quarters, sorting objects, measuring lengths and reading scales.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
