Great idea - the timer and buzzer really helps their enthusiasm to do maths at home!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 10 Minutes a Day Maths Ages 7-9 (Paperback)
This balances well between teaching a concept and practicing it - they are a good number of questions per page at differing levels. It isn't dis-similar in approach in that respect from a number of other publications, but what I loved and the children loved was the chance to time themselves and know that it really was only ten minutes.
It's amazing what a little gimmick can do in terms of a child's enthusiasm to run upstairs and do maths!!
I have used this book in two ways, firstly starting at the front and working through, but then when my child has been doing a certain topic in maths, I have gone to that page and the focused practice has helped her comprehension of the subject at school.
I like Carol Vorermans way of teaching the subject - I think the style of her books is user friendly and engaging, but this timer really helps and is a great concept.
