(Ages 7-10): The Number Triangle Game (£0.60)

When children first learn to add and subtract, they will be encouraged to use their fingers to help them. This is a good strategy for small numbers.

Once they have understood the concepts, they then need to memorise key addition and subtraction facts. This is faster and more accurate than counting.

The number triangle game is a really powerful way of helping your child to become fluent with the number facts. It should be played daily until the facts are mastered.
