What is mental maths? 

Mental maths is the process of performing mathematical calculations in your head without the use of external aids such as pen and paper, calculators, or other tools. It's a valuable skill that children develop as they learn and practice arithmetic operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

How do tests and quizzes help your child with mental maths?

Mental math tests reinforce key mathematical concepts such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. By applying these concepts in various problem-solving scenarios, children deepen their understanding and retention of mathematical principles.

This mental maths test doesn't need to be timed, but it will help your child become familiar with mental maths exams and the skills they'll need to answer the questions quickly and accurately.
