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.

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 to help teachers, parents and tutors to select the appropriate book for each child.

Mental Arithmetic 6 extends beyond the Key Stage 2 curriculum,consolidating key subject areas alongside more advanced concepts such as profit and loss, using spreadsheets and conducting mathematical investigations. The book includes:

  • 36 one-page tests, each presented in a unique three-part format comprising: questions on number, calculation and algebra, questions on money, measurement, geometry and approximations, longer problem-solving questions.
  • Achievement Charts to encourage pupils to monitor their own learning.
  • Revision Tests to identify gaps in understanding.

A separate accompanying answer book, Mental Arithmetic 6 Answers (ISBN 9780721708102), contains correct answers to all the questions, making marking quick and easy.

Please note that this product is normally only sold as part of our pack KS2 Mental Maths Assault Pack. Whilst we are happy to sell this item to you, it may not include full answers (or indeed the full questions) and would be more suitable and useful as part of our pack.

This series is great for providing your children with just a few minutes more maths each week. You can see how they are doing and where their weaknesses are. Even if you are not god at maths you can let your children get on with these and answers are included. Each test covers a double spread and contains three types of question. It helps the children well for coping with their SATS. My daughter has never been brilliant at maths but she thinks it's the best, most fun subject at school and I think that's because she is used to doing these exercises for fun at home. It helps with confidence.



These books have been bought to help my son. They have been really good in that they give background support to his Maths studies and provide extra exercises when it comes to revision rather than making up our own.



Use these books with my class every week. You have to buy a separate book for the answers though which is a major drawback.



good book, but ... should be supplied with answers makes it dearer to buy answer book, W.H.Smith cheaper, with answers in back of book



I thought the teacher's book would show the step to step methods of solving the problems but was disappointed that it only gave answers to the problems. I ended up buying two books with all the same details, the only difference was that one had answers and the other none.
