Product Description

Review

We have seen some excellent progress across Key Stage 2 using the Mental Arithmetic books. Staff commented that pupils have pupils have doubled their scores in mental maths tests and that their confidence in maths is improving. --Catherine Jubbs, Headteacher

I have been using these books in school for over a decade for maths homework. They make a real difference as they provide frequent practice and improve children's mental maths skills. --J Ciuputa, Headteacher

Format: Paperback
The Schofield & Sims Mental Arithmetic books are widely used in private schools and they have got to be by far the beat value workbooks available to parents whose children are preparing to sit their 11+. Each page has maths questions on everything from algebra to geometry. The sums are presented in simple equation form as well as the more wordy questions of the type found in SAT's. If by the beginning of Year 6 a child is confident with the level of sums in Book 5 he/she should be capable of performing well in the 11+ which usually take place in the first term of the academic year. It would be a good idea to buy the answer book to accompany Book 5 as it saves time in marking the tests. I found this workbook much more useful than the Bond test papers which are more expensive and require your child to sit a timed practice test whereas the Schofield and Sims books allow for more flexible study. Furthermore as each page covers all arithmetic principles , areas of weakness are easily highlighted. Msot of the parents at my children's state school rely on this series and without exception rate it very highly.

Having met my daughter's maths teacher who showed me this book to be the foundation of her teachings to all the children in Year 3 (7/8 year olds) I knew that this, together with Books 1,2,3,4 & 6, would be the ideal support for homework assistance. Until I bought this from Amazon, I had no guidelines at all and 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 revisionary 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 and go on to our local grammar school. Sounds a bit over-the-top, but in its way, this little book can actually change the course of your children's lives - because the difference between our local grammar school and the comprehensive school is obvious for all to see. Getting a good grade at Arithmetic at age 11 is a fundamental requirement to being selected for a school offering better standards of education and in turn better opportunities in the future. I bought Books 1 through to 6 and I'm pleased I did.

Our private tutor recommended Schofield and Sims as they ask slightly more searching questions than those found in Bond papers. My daughter is getting ready for entrance exams to one of the top independent schools. If she does pass it will be partly down to working though these books. We have completed book 4 and now half way through book 5. If your child is good enough to answer majority of the tougher questions in book 5 then they should have a good chance in getting through some of the tougher entrance exams.

The series of Mental Arithmetic books is absolutely brilliant. And I am sure this one would be also IF only you could read it! It is printed orange lettering on white paper and it is very difficult to read - especially the smaller lettering i.e. fractions etc. It's true I need glasses (perhaps I should go to Specsavers!) but the youngsters can't read it very well either. So, only 2 stars.

good book, but.. should be supplied with answers
having to buy answer book makes it dearer than buying in W.H.Smiths (answers in back of book)

Very helpful for my child who is in year 5. She is learning more maths calculations with the help of a tuitor. Brilliant book. I bought the answer book too, because it doesn't come with any.
