The first section concentrates on the addition and subtraction of numbers up to ten. Learners are encouraged to see connections between the number bonds. e.g. 5 + 4 = 9 and 9 - 5 = 4 so that they begin to recall the facts more easily. 4 + 5 = 9 9 - 4 = 5 The later worksheets move students gently on to simple calculations involving numbers up to 100. There is a systematic approach to adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers using constant reinforcement of place value. The main emphasis is on mental calculations though some calculations have been set out vertically to prepare students for more formal methods later. The work is continued to harder examples involving borrowing and carrying in “Arithmetic” SKILLSHEETS. Each worksheet comes in three versions.

It is ideal for helping people to practise their times tables. These SKILLSHEETS show students the basic principles behind multiplication and division and the connections between them. The book is structured to ensure progression from the idea of counting objects in groups to memorising multiplication facts and using formal and informal methods with understanding to solve problems. Each times table has its own page. There are plenty of examples of how to use tricks and patterns to work out complicated multiplications mentally. Estimation skills are also covered. The word problem sheets throughout the book assess students’ ability to apply their skills to real situations. Knowing when to multiply or divide is as important as knowing how to. The worksheets on multiplication and division by 10, 100, and 1000 focus on shifting digits’ place value to take students away from the “add a zero to times by ten” idea which causes problems once decimals are involved.
