Maths Balloons a Simple Method to Learn Times Tables

94 pages4 minutes


Maths Balloons are a simple-to-use idea for children who struggle with Maths. They are also suitable for more confident children who want to challenge themselves. The tasks can be repeated many times using different numbers, building from where a child feels happy to start and taking them into stronger work.
The tasks in this book focus on Times Table work and also include Addition. This gives a very gentle introduction into algebra and formula, as the sums require more than one step, and to work out numbers from cues, rather than simply being given the full sum.
The times tables in this book do not need to stay within the 12 x usually studied in schools – children are encouraged to move past 12 x and into the bigger numbers. A grid and examples methods are included.
