Try my free three week differentiated Mental Maths program. I use this program to improve my students retention of mathematics they have learnt in Grade 2 or are learning in Grade 3. Each slide has 3 columns of 7 to 10 mental maths questions.
Column One: For SAER students at Grade 1 to 2 level
Column Two: For at level Grade 3 students
Column Three: For extension students working on Grade 4 and above mental maths questions.
Each day covers:
- Place Value
- Word Problems
How do I run this program?
I run my mental maths program by grouping my students into one of the three groups above. They all each have a mental maths booklet. I display the mental maths of the day on my Interactive Smart Board or other device and set a timer for 10 minutes. If students finish early they are to work on another list of questions. When the 10 minutes are up, I display the answers and students self mark. We then discuss any questions they had trouble with and talk through the different strategies we can use to solve them.
