Mathematics is everywhere in life because it helps us solve problems.
It helps us decide what deal's best in the supermarket, it helps Apple illustrate which of their iPhones is the newest and we use it to select what size, price and often even style of clothing we buy. It cannot be understated just how important a strong, fundamental grasp of maths is.
“Mental Maths” is the fundamental mathematical skill. It's not just learning to get by without a calculator, it's an essential mathematical competency that's required if children are to do well at their 11+ exams, KS2 SATs tests and beyond.
Children need to be confident using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They need to learn how they're used with measures, shapes, money, time and space and how to use all of these parameters correctly to solve problems.
Introducing our KS2 Mental Maths Assault Pack, 7x award winning Schofield and Sims workbooks that together with their separate answer booklets and teacher's guide offer an enormous amount of rewarding maths practice for children.
The set is aimed at children aged between 7 and 11, levels 3 to 6 (yes, you read correctly, up to level 6!). Each workbook is divided into three sections, each comprising of 12 one-page tests presented in a very easy-to-read layout.
Book 1 aims to start at Level 3 with basic additions, subtractions, multiplications and divisions before moving on to maths using “number vocabulary” (a common stumbling block). The final section presents questions as problems (a typical 11+ style).
Books 2 through to 6 offer progressively harder questions and by the time pupils are working through Book 6, many of the questions are at Level 6 standard. Tables, diagrams, charts, measures and graphs are used throughout the entire series of books.
Answers for all the questions are available within the included answer books. Indeed the pack actually contains an enormous 13x individual booklets!
Also included is the fantastic Teachers Guide, probably the most useful book of all. Within it are qualitative answers to help parents diagnose problem areas as well as a superb reference area and glossery.
The KS2 Mental Maths Assault Pack contains an enormous amount of practice material. It's a staggeringly good set of books to help develop mathematical confidence for children aged between 7 and 11.
It may be quite expensive but Exam Ninja would rate the KS2 Mental Maths Assault Pack as our best KS2 maths tool. It's an all-in-one workbook set for success at KS2 Maths, 11+ Maths and well into secondary school.
