Mental Calculation Methods


Children should complete tasks on Mathletics to earn a minimum of 1000 participation points. Once they have earned 1000 points, they will receive a Bronze certificate.

When a child earns 5 Bronze certificates, they receive a Silver certificate, and when they have earned 4 Silver they will receive a Gold certificate.

Children can only earn one certificate of each colour once a week.

5 Bronze certificates = 1 Silver certificate
4 Silver certificates = 1 Gold certificate
