The education White Paper EXCELLENCE IN SCHOOLS states that by 2002 there will be national homework guidelines and that Ofsted will expect to have a homework policy. "Shared" homework activities are strongly recommended by the National Numeracy Strategy: parents and children working at home to develop key skills. This new series will be a valuable add-on to DEVELOPING MENTAL MATHS should teachers want a complete scheme for mental maths, but will also stand-alone as a homework package in its own right. As in the related series, the fully photocopiable activities will be divided in to 'Counting and ordering', 'Addition and subtraction', 'Multiplication and division' and 'Multistep and mixed operations'. Each page will concentrate on one strategy, offering an investigation or game, together with a letter to the parent or carer explaining the maths and how best to help the child in his/her strategy development. The main USPs of Developing/Practising/Quick Mental Maths are: Enhances maths language; Develops mental maths strategies forinstant recall and figuring out. Therefore, it would seem that a homework programme supporting the USPs of these series and providing shared homework activities would be a potentially profitable way to carry Scholastic Maths Skills forward.
