Run a Class vs Class Mental Maths Mastery (and Times Table) Competition
Mental Maths Mastery supports mathematical learning and understanding. Children with a strong grasp of their mental maths skills tend to be more self-assured when learning new concepts.
Mangahigh's Mental Maths Mastery (and Times Table) Competition is an opportunity for students to challenge themselves, while learning and practising their mental maths (and times table) by completing a combination of adaptive quizzes and games. A Class vs Class format can help students stay motivated, raising the profile of mental maths (and times table) mastery across the school.
How does Mangahigh support your school?
During the 5-week competition period, students fast-track their learning by completing an extraordinary number of pre-assigned mental maths (or times table) activities. Students are rewarded with a lapel pin, and a mental maths (or times table) mastery licence, on completion of these set activities.
