Our aims for the children at St. Monica’s

To have a secure knowledge of number
facts and a good understanding of the
4 operations
To use this knowledge to carry out
calculations mentally
To know when mental methods are not
To have an efficient, reliable, written
method of calculation for each operation Have a go at these word problems Your Turn! Mrs Tottle-Nugent will read out a Mental maths test. You get a limited time to respond and there's no going back!
Good Luck!! Your Turn! We will show you a selection of calculations
Try to use a different method for each one.
Try to use:
a number line
A grid
It's possible that the methods that you were taught or work best for you, are NOT THE SAME for your child. Your turn Times tables Number bonds Doubles Halves Divisibility rules Number lines
Grid method
Use near and adjust Column Addition Column Subtration Column Multiplication Short Division 5x4=20
and using knowledge of place value
40x50= 2000
and so on..... If you know 4x5= 20 what else do you know? 2 - the last digit is 0,2,4,6 or 8
3- the sum of the digits is divisible by 3
4- the last 2 digits are divisible by 4
5 - the last digit is 5 or 0
6 - It is divisible by both 2 & 3
7 - Check a known near multiple of 7
8 - Half of it is divisible by 4 OR
the last 3 digits are divisible by 8
9 - the sum of the digits is divisible by 9
10 - the last digit is 0 Divisibility Rules Know corresponding facts
