Product Description

The development of a variety of mental strategies helps to make children confident mathematicians.

Students who can perform mathematical computations swiftly and accurately in their heads are seen as being good at maths. In general, poorer performing students use less efficient strategies and the development of mental computation through a strategy approach can help them move forwards. Research has shown that after instruction students seemed more likely to use strategies that reflected number sense and that this was a long-term change. (Markovits and Sowder, 1994)

Students with number sense know the relative size of numbers and use a variety of computation strategies to solve a problem. This enables them to approach maths with a real sense of what they are being asked to do, making them more confident, with a greater ability to work mathematically.

This book is written in two-page weekly units. Units are divided into four terms of work and each term ends with a Revision Unit. There are 35 units in total.
