To cater for early learning development, Think Mentals Student Workbook 1 includes preparatory units that teach early maths concepts and friendly number facts.
The preparatory units cover important pre-strategies that train young minds to:
* visualise sets of numbers in different ways
* partition numbers
* recognise where numbers are in relation to each other along a number line.
Pre-strategies build a solid foundation for learning and applying Think Mentals strategies in Years 2–6. Currently, Year 1 is only available in Student Workbook format.
