Success@Arithmetic

Success@Arithmetic is a 'light touch' calculation based intervention for learners in upper Key Stage 2 and in Key Stage 3 who have difficulties with arithmetic proficiency.

 

There are 24 steps which are organised into 4 strands:

1. Addition

2. Subtraction

3. Multiplication

4. Division

 

These strands focus on developing procedural fluency and conceptual understanding, suing concrete, pictorial and symbolic representations. These steps develop both mental and written methods of calculation and help learners to think and talk about their calculation methods.
