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.
