Think Mentals is a unique approach to mental maths that systematically teaches students the appropriate strategies to apply in mental computation.

Think Mentals is a unique approach to mental maths that systematically teaches students the appropriate strategies to apply in mental computation. The easy-to-follow weekly structure includes worked examples of strategies and carefully graded practice activities to help students achieve fluency in maths and improve results.

Making maths friendly

Think Mentals teaches students how to break maths problems into friendly, manageable chunks. Once they can do this, students will develop the skills and confidence to perform mental computations quickly and easily.

Strategies make sense

By learning and practising Think Mentals’ clever strategies students can train their brains to solve maths problems quickly and easily.
From Day 1 students learn mental computation strategies to use when solving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems. Once students learn how to use these simple strategies the rest is just practice – and there are plenty of opportunities for practice.

Features:

Think Mentals Student Books are divided into carefully structured weekly units. Each book contains:

  • 18 modelled computation strategies for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
  • A fun and easy introductory unit to show students how to find, make and fix ‘friendly’ numbers
  • Over 30 weeks of carefully structured and differentiated mental computation questions
  • Content written for the Australian Curriculum.

Book 1 also contains preparatory units that teach early maths concepts and friendly number facts.

What's in a week?

Day 1: Strategy
The week begins with a new strategy. A friendly explanation is followed by worked examples and practice questions.
Days 2–4: Practice
The focus strategy is consolidated with more practice questions, then previous strategies are reinforced with revision questions. Next, students tackle a variety of question types from across the ACARA content strands.
Day 5: Assessment
The weekly test combines focus, revision and core content questions. Results are recorded in the Student Assessment Profile to give a weekly snapshot of progress. Students can also record scores and times daily.
