Product description for teachers and tutors

Mental Arithmetic provides rich and varied practice to develop pupils’ essential maths skills and prepare them for all aspects of the Key Stage 2 national tests. It may also be used as preparation for the 11+, and with older students for consolidation and recovery. 

Tailored to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum for primary mathematics, each book contains 36 one-page tests designed to build confidence and fluency and keep skills sharp. Each test is presented in a unique three-part format comprising:

  • Part A: questions where use of language is kept to a minimum
  • Part B: questions using number vocabulary
  • Part C: questions focusing on one- and two-step word problems. 

Structured according to ability rather than age, the series allows children to work at their own pace, building confidence and fluency. Two Entry Tests are available in the Mental Arithmetic Teacher’s Guide and on the Schofield & Sims website, enabling teachers, parents and tutors to select the appropriate book for each child. All the books can be used flexibly for individual, paired, group or whole-class maths practice, as well as for homework and one-to-one intervention.

Mental Arithmetic 3 is aimed at pupils in lower Key Stage 2 and covers the key subject areas of number, measurement, geometry and statistics, including negative numbers, Roman numerals, decimals, equivalent fractions, times tables, digital and analogue clocks, problem solving and classifying shapes. Three Progress Charts, together with four topic-based Check-up Tests, are also provided to monitor learning and identify any gaps in understanding. A separate accompanying answer book, Mental Arithmetic Book 3 Answers, contains correct answers to all the questions, making marking quick and easy.

Dimensions: 21 x 0.3 x 29.7 cm

These are by far the BEST books for keeping childrens maths knowledge and skills up to date as it revisits everything that they have learned throughout the year. Fantastic investment!!!

An excellent series of books for stimulating the thought processes required for mental arithmetic/tables application - 10 minutes a day can make a real difference and the steady revision gives pupils confidence for numeracy lessons at school.

Until I bought this from Amazon, I didn't know if the arithmetic I was 'teaching' at home was too hard, too easy or just plain useless. Now with this book I have the perfect assistant, because I know that the specific topics covered and the level of difficulty is exactly matched to what my daughter is studying at school, so it's an excellent revision tool, and it's even enjoyable too! Strongly recommended, I have no doubt that with regular use of this book at home my daughter, and her younger sister when her time comes, will have a much better chance of making the necessary grade in Year 6. In its way, this little book can actually change the course of your children's lives.

Excellent aid for practising mental arithmetic. One page a day was sufficient to raise my child's mental maths scores. I highly recommend this publication.

I have used these books in schools for nearly 30 years. They are just as useful now as they were then. An EXCELLENT resource with wide-ranging questions that get children to think for themselves.

As an 11+ tutor I use these books on a regular basis. All of my pupils have shown a marked improvement in both their mental arithmetic and problem solving skills. Section C is of particular benefit to the style of questions in the 11+. Sections A and B give confidence.

I love the books, but would like answers with working out steps. Some numbers are hard to work out. Also, I didn't study from this country so some of mine are odd. I end skipping them so my son misses out on a lot of learning.
