What is Mental Maths Challenge?
Mental Maths Challenge is a natural complement to BondBuilder & TableTrainer.
Recalling number facts is only part of the story. Very often, these facts need to be adapted or made to contribute to a strategy involving ideas about number relationships that enable us to work things out in our heads.
Mental Maths Challenge provides two distinct kinds of engagement: Practice Mode and Challenge Mode.
In Practice mode, all the cards are presented in a pre-defined order of increasing difficulty with no timer recording the time taken. Once the learner feels confident that s/he understands the strategy and can enact it accurately, s/he can click on the Take the Test button.
In Challenge mode, a subset of the cards is randomly selected for answering. The challenge is to complete the test in less than a minute. Because the subset is a random selection, teachers may feel it appropriate to expect students to complete the test on more than one occasion to ensure they can answer all possible examples from the set.
