Excel Basic Skills Workbook: Mental Maths St 2

Not Just Books

Mental Maths is the Maths we do in our heads without the use of calcu lators and without writing down the calculation. Mental Maths strategies are the '?tricks'? we use to do Maths in our heads. There are differe nt ways of finding the answer to any Mental Maths problem, and such stra tegies are the focus of this series. Even though calculators and compute rs play an enormous role in the modern world, we still need to go back t o the basics ? we do need to know how to check that the sales assistant at the counter is giving us the right change! Mental Maths has become m ore important than ever and new primary Maths syllabuses in Australia ar e reflecting this. For example, NSW has placed an emphasis on Mental Mat hs in its primary syllabus, and even the Year 10 School Certificate exam ination has a compulsory non-calculator section.
