Mental Maths Gym

Mental maths is such an important skill but it is easy for everyone - children and adults included - to become lazy when we have easy access to calculators and other tools to work out maths problems. We love these mental maths "gym" printables because they are a cross between a maths drill and a puzzle and a challenge!

We've created 6 different levels, from easy A to very challenging F - so you can choose which is appropriate for the level of your kids. Read them out, hand them out or put them up on display on the white board. Each pack has 5 pages and each page has 3 or 4 challenges, using a mixture of maths signs and maths language. And we've included an answer sheet too.
