The building blocks of **Mental Maths** and Maths are theTimes Tables and Number Bonds. **EVERYONE** has to learn them.

Many children struggle to learn the times tables and the number bonds.

Research shows us that -

*“One of the areas most commonly found to create difficulties is memory for arithmetical facts” *

Research Paper: What Works for Children with Mathematical Difficulties?,2004 & 2010

Times Tables and the number bonds need to be memorised. Memory is a key area for developing confidence in Mental Maths.

Here at the Kids Maths Tutor, we have drawn on the best research in this area. The experts in this area are the Memory Champions because they have demonstrated outstanding feats of memory. They always state the fact that these methods are simple and can be used by anyone.

If the memory champions tried to memorize in the way that our children try to learn the times tables and number bonds, there would be no amazing memory records. Our brains are not designed to remember in this way.

**So what do the memory champions do differently?**

**They all memorise facts by linking images to locations. This is the basis of all successful memory systems.**

*When the memory champion, Dominic O’Brien memorized 360 random numbers in only 5 minutes! He did this by linking visual images to locations/set places.
The memory champions have always maintained that these techniques can be learnt by anyone. This is true because the techniques are so simple and straightforward to learn.*

The Kids Maths Tutor uses the principle of **linking images to locations** to learn the Times Tables and the Number Bonds in a simple, easy, and fun way that achieves 100% Instant Recall of Maths facts e.g. 6 x 7 = 42, or 8 + 7 = 15.

**Mental Maths builds on knowing the answers to the Times Tables and Number Bonds instantly.**

- Mental Maths is the
**KEY**to Maths Confidence - The Mental Maths test is 20% of the Year 6 SATs test
- Mental maths skills are needed for a large part of the SATs A + B papers
- If your child learns important mental skills, every maths lesson in school will be enjoyable and will be an opportunity to build maths confidence

The Kids Maths Tutor course focuses on Mental Maths -

- Learning the Times Tables and Number Bonds for instant recall - Important!
- A thorough understanding of Place Value (
*Hundreds, Tens & Units - the bigger numbers and decimals which cause problems*) and partitioning explained - Addition - the different methods used at school (
*number lines, column addition and partitioning*) - Subtraction - the different methods used at school (
*number lines, column addition and partitioning*) - Multiplication - the different methods used at school - the grid method, long multiplication (
*using the grid method for long multiplication*)

- Division - the different methods used at school - division by chunking
*(soon to be added*) - Seeing patterns behind numbers and maths - using these patterns to work out bigger numbers quickly (your child can feel like a genius)

**We are also in the process of improving and developing these resources into a full 6 year maths course for children aged 5-11.**

The Learning Tutor is a charity. We are charging a nominal sum for use in all classes throughout the school.

This will enable us to develop the resources further (see below for our 3 step development plan).
