<p>Inspired by the Dr K’s Brain Training; I’ve made a PowerPoint containing 50 slides of quick fire calculations for practicing mental math (+ x -). Could easily be adapted by changing the numbers or operations. The slides are set to show for 4 seconds on screen before changing; this could be altered to give more or less time depending on the ability of the children. I work on aiming for accuracy first then speed.</p>

This looks brilliant! I have some competitive little chaps in my math group and they will love this challenge - it will also give me a really good assessment tool for mental math. Thank you - this must have taken you ages. Really appreciate your hard wor

A wonderful resource which I have used as a motivational tool, the students settle really quickly when this starts. I have made another one using this as a template because the students were starting to become too familiar with this one!

Super idea - will defo use! May even put sound effect for each slide so kids writing answers on a whiteboard know when it has moved onto next Q.
