Product Code 9781922887238


In line with updated curriculums for the 2023 / 2024 school year, we are excited to announce the launch of our new Targeting Mental Maths 2022 Editions for years 1, 2 & 3. The new editions are fully update, and have all the features that educators love about Targeting Mental Maths.

When children can solve problems in their heads, they feel more confident in their own abilities. The development of mental computation progresses through a range of strategies that can be improved by regular practice. The Targeting Mental Maths series targets the structured development of the children’s mental maths strategies.

The Year 1 Targeting Mental Maths book has been written to complement the Targeting Maths Australian Curriculum Year 1 Student Book. The two-page weekly units run parallel to the contents in the student book. Units are divided into four terms of work and each term ends with a Revision Unit. There are 32 units in total.

A unit consists of two facing pages. The left-hand page has three groups of quick mental exercises that constantly practise the necessary maths facts. The right-hand page always starts with an explanation and practice of a mental strategy. This is followed by exercises that include work on space, measurement, position, number, data, chance etc. The page concludes with a problem of the week.
