This resource will help students improve mental math skills, raise test scores and elevate mathematics beyond recall to an overall understanding of number sense and effective problem-solving strategies. Mathementals provides both developmental and repetitive practice in mental computation skills to help students achieve computational fluency. A review at the end of the activities relates to each operation, and each review is followed by a one-page game or puzzle. Students learn to develop their own range of mental strategies for each operation, and they gain understanding and flexibility in number and operations.
About the Program
Each book, Grades 2-6, includes all four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The Grade 1 book features addition and subtraction.
- for building and solidifying basic computational fluency
- for additional practice in basic skills and mental computation on an individual, small group, or whole class basis
- to sharpen problem-solving skills
