New game to play! Mental Maths Train

Topmarks is excited to add a new game to our growing collection of learning resources – this one is called Mental Maths Train.

This new interactive game is designed for 5-11 year olds to practise numeracy skills of the four operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division – specifically focussing on the varied vocabulary around the calculations.

It’s important for pupils to recognise the different language used for expressing the same maths functions, such as take away, reduce and subtract, all within the subtraction operation.

Since Mental Maths Train is fully randomised, you’ll find it’s versatile and highly re-playable! Not least with the wide range of levels within each operation offering excellent progression opportunities.
