The development of mental computation progresses through a range of strategies that can be improved by regular practice. The Targeting Mental Maths series targets the structured development of children's mental maths strategies. Each double-page weekly unit includes an explanation and practice of a specific mental strategy alongside sets of focused questions that reinforce important basic facts. The 'problem of the week' is a motivating problem that gets children thinking and applying their mathematical skills.
