## Mental Maths

By developing strong mathematical foundations and an early understanding of numbers and arithmetic, children will find the rest of their mathematical education more interesting and much easier to grasp. They are also likely to get a lot more from their studies of science and technology in the future.  3+4 will always equal 7, 4x5 will always equal 20, and so some rote learning (learning by repetition and/or memorisation - in this case with worksheets) is a suitable and efficient way to practise and develop mathematical skills and techniques so that they become second nature; hard-wired number facts in a young person’s brain. You don’t have to think when asked what is 2+2: you just know that it is 4. The sooner that a child just knows certain number facts, the better, but that knowledge comes only through practice.

The way that reading is taught has changed a lot over the years with phonics now favoured, but the phonic sounds themselves are still taught to 4 and 5 year olds using rote learning - there is no better way. Only with those first basic building blocks securely in place is it then possible to teach reading.
Similarly with mathematics, once strong foundations have been built, a whole new world opens up before a child. Without the right basic mental tools a child will always struggle with mathematics, and therefore with many other subjects too.
Of all the mathematics taught in schools, it is that taught to children before the age of 11 which is most important in the rest of their lives. Most people will never use anything they learn in mathematics lessons after that age in their adult life, but good basic number skills and mental arithmetic ability will remain a powerful tool to have and use every day.

Teachers or parents can initially work through the worksheets with the children in their care to ensure they have a good understanding of the technique(s) to be practised. Children can then finish the worksheet and complete further worksheets independently.
