Many children struggle with maths because they’ve never mastered the basics. Excellent mental maths lie at the core of the Satchel maths programme, helping to develop children with calculation skills which are the envy of their classmates. Children learn to add and subtract without finger counting, know their times tables ‘off by heart’ and perform all the main operations confidently and accurately.
Ever wondered why two negative signs make a positive or what the point of algebra is? Children who understand mathematical concepts have a better appreciation of the subject and are better able to solve word problems. Satchel maths is designed to show the reason behind the rules, rather than simply accepting them at face value.
Beginning with identifying simple shapes, Satchel takes children on a journey through angles and volume and towards advanced mathematics such as quadratic graphs and trigonometry. Along the way, it covers subjects such as time, money, data and units of measurement. Everything they need, in fact, to succeed at school and in exams.
Mathematicians are problem solvers. Satchel word problem booklets and supplementary question sheets develop children’s ability to answer school and examination word problems quickly, logically and accurately.
“Having struggled for years with maths, Satchel helped rebuild my daughter’s confidence and gave her to skills to pass her maths GCSE”
“My daughter has improved significantly after joining Satchel maths. She used to be scared of numbers but now maths is one of her favourite subjects. I am really impressed with the quality of the Satchel materials and the quality of the teaching.”
“Satchel gave my daughter confidence with numbers, in particularly mental arithmetic, as she learnt her times tables quickly. Thanks to Satchel, she was always ahead of her school peers in subjects such as percentages and fractions.”
