#1 MATHS RESOURCES

After downloading my first resource over nine years ago and receiving 93,000 viewings, I realised that the sort of resources I create seems to be what busy teachers want. Everything I make is tried and tested on my willing pupils and my aim is for everyone to enjoy and understand the topics I feature.

Turbo Tests

Turbo Tests

These tests are designed to encourage the pupils to complete 25 mixed mental arithmetic questions in under three minutes. There are 6 levels with Level A being the most basic, consolidating simple number bonds, the 2x, 5x and 10x tables. Level F's questions involve decimals, fractions, percentage, square roots and metric measure as well as more complex computations. Pupils write their answers in a special booklet and keep a record of their progress. They mark their tests themselves using the specially designed answer cards. Each Level consists of 24 tests. Once the tests and answers have been downloaded, the teacher should laminate the pages and cut them up to make the individual cards. Pupils seem to enjoy the challenge of competing against the clock and each child works at his or her own level. My pupils love doing the Turbo Tests and I have seen an improvement in their mental skills as a result of using the tests on a regular basis.
