This blackline master book has been designed to provide structured mathematical problems as practice and consolidation across a range of concepts for students of all abilities. It provides ideal opportunities for teachers to meet Standards for Number and Operations related requirements of the Math curricular area. The Contents page matches the concepts covered in the book with various Standards as set down on a national basis. The Standards provided here are a compilation of those from various organizations and states, and you may need to paraphrase to match them exactly to your requirements.

Part A Math Facts Problems

The sets of exercises provided graduate progressively from easy to more complex. Such grading is arbitrary as a student’s background and conceptual development will result in a personal definition of what is difficult (i.e. ·6×3 harder than (2×3)+(3÷3)? ). Each set also contains simpler problems to enable all students to maintain a reasonable score and thereby prevent discouragement.

In order to indicate gradual progress and improvement by students we have provided a color coded record chart (Page 5). The aim of this chart is to indicate an achievement or maintenance of a ‘green standard’ of attainment, despite the increasing level of difficulty. Alternatively a ‘red result’ can be used to indicate problem areas. Another approach to the exercise sets is to decrease the time taken for each ensuing set of exercises. This time component may be chosen to be overlooked if it creates accuracy errors. After all, the prime objective is raising the level of accuracy.

Part B Speed Practice

These have been designed as speed accuracy assessment lists. Each operation is presented in four sets, and each set progressively increases in difficulty.

Part C Problems To Ponder

These are included as extension activities for fast finishers. They can also be used as separate activities presented to students via a card or chalkboard system.
