This PowerPoint includes the following to help you get your Mental Maths program on track:

– Contents Page – This will help you know what is coming up for your students so that you can prepare lessons accordingly.
– Lesson Sequence – This outlines how you can teach the content in your classroom prior to your students reaching that content in their Mental Maths book.
– A Dozen a Day questions and challenges – Tests are grouped in lots of 5. One test per slide. Each test has 12 questions and 1 challenge question to help with differentiation
– Answer sheets
