Post subject:  Mental Maths

I have DS that will be taking the 11+ this Sept.

I think his mental maths is a bit on the weak side as he resorts writing things down when it can be done in the head.
As a result, he loses some valuable time, sometimes.

Is there any books that I can that he can practice to boost this over the next coming months ?
I think he just needs the confidence to be able to do it in the head first

There are plenty of free websites or make it a game.

Game: Split a pack of cards into red and black - take one card from each pile and multiply, quickest correct answer wins.

Jack = 11, Queen = 12 and King = 13.
