If you counted the number of times in a day you use mental maths, the answer would probably shock you! To your child, maths may seem easier when he’s able to do the work on paper rather than in his head. If he only knew how much these mental maths strategies will help in the future! This activity is a great starting point because it is quick, easy and involves only simple addition facts. Starting with mental maths basics will give your child the confidence to take on longer, more complex problems. He’ll want to continue “knocking off” the maths in his head – because he can!
