This is a bundle of 21 mental maths starters - 10 question each PPT with an animated countdown timer on each question/slide! I have used this on various weaker groups to build up their mental maths scores, confidence and to chart progress.
These are also FOCUSED ON small COMMON MISTAKES made in exams !! such as 2 to the power of 3 = 8, not 6 etc... as well as building knowledge of maths language, number properties and the obvious improving mental mathematical skills.
The PowerPoints are self-timing and answers are provided at the end. These have in my experience worked really well with the less able pupils... the top sets like them too, because you can speed it up and they become competitive. These are excellent to help engage pupils at the start of the lesson and would be useful for classes that struggle to get settled at the beginning.
