First Mental Arithmetic Book 5

Product description for parents
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 & Sims Mental Arithmetic materials read the questions themselves and write down their answers.
A Language of maths glossary helps to develop their number vocabulary and three Check-ups assess children's understanding. The separate First Mental Arithmetic 5 Answers (ISBN 978 07217 1173 7) provides answers to all the questions contained in this book, plus additional resources for teachers
Each Mental Arithmetic book contains activities of three different types:
- Part A: questions using pictures or simplified language
- Part B: questions using maths vocabulary and/or mathematical symbols such as: + – = < and >
- Part C: word problems or questions that test the child’s ability to use his or her understanding of mathematical concepts.
Key Stage 1 / Key Stage 2 level for ages 5 to 7 / 7 to 11
