About this course

Mental maths has, in some cases, become neglected, even though the skills underpin a lot of the core skills needed to be a successful mathematician. Practicing mental maths on a regular basis will not only help develop a ‘maths brain’, concentration and the application of maths skills, but will also help manage cognitive load, and build resilience and confidence in handling more complex problems.

Maths teachers, TAs and even parents will benefit from this course, which will help all children develop ‘number sense’ and the ability to understand mathematical concepts.


  • Using mental maths to develop reasoning skills
  • Help reduce mistakes in problem-solving
  • Improve memory skills
  • Stimulate our pupils’ interest in numbers
