Collins Mental Maths 2 is a part of a series of teacher's guides and pupil books that can be used to develop children's mental maths skills. Mental maths is at the heart of the Numeracy Strategy and this pupil book would be an excellent resource for teachers and parents to use to develop children's numeracy skills.
This book is intended for use with Year 2 children (6-7 year olds) and would consolidate mental maths skills that they are learning as part of the Numeracy Strategy, for example, ordering numbers, odd and even numbers, finding the difference etc. This book could be used orally with children or they could record their answers in the book. The help boxes clearly show the children which mental strategy they should be using. There are six check-up tests to see how things are progressing.
The series of pupil books is for children from Year 1 to 6 and there are accompanying teacher's guides that help with the different methods of teaching mental maths. --Amanda YorkReview:
Excellent book, attractively laid out. not too expensive! Covers a wide area related to the National Curriculum. I have been using it for year2/3 'special educational needs' children. It helps to consolidate previously learned concepts. Invaluable!
If you're one of these teachers who likes to give their class a little mental warm up (inside or outside the numeracy hour), but struggles to find something for each and every day, for each and every topic area - then look no further! I've found that the mental maths work in this book suits the needs of my mixed Year5/6 class! Another teacher referred me to it - and I'm referring it to you! It's well worth it!
