Is there anybody on here from Andrell Education or anybody with a lot of experience of using Big Maths who would be kind enough to answer a specific query?

mrz Sat 30-Jan-16 05:39:52

I'll try?

Richa1 Sat 30-Jan-16 09:18:29

Thank you. My child has been stuck on the same level for months consistently getting 9 out of 10. How could I get them to progress?

My DD does this, each week they bring home the test for next week to work on at home. We practice occasionally a lot and it seems to help if we do it regularly.

Richa1 Sat 30-Jan-16 09:27:17

Thanks. Our school does not send home the test. Our child has for maybe 8-10 weeks been getting 9 out of 10 but always makes a mistake somewhere

From looking at my child's test, the more practise they do at the times tables will help them and also checking the question - is it an add or a multiply because they are mixed up on the test sheet. Also knowing their doubles because there are quite a few x2. Also, the numbers that make up 10 as there are some of those as well.

Thanks for your reply. She has a problem on the clic tests. It sounds like you are talking about the learn its test.

SoporificHobnob Sat 30-Jan-16 11:03:46

Yes, sorry. I've not seen the CLIC test that she does but I expect much of the same stuff would be useful? A quick google of CLIC Maths tests came up with some online copies.

Richa1 Sat 30-Jan-16 12:46:22

Thanks again but the school uses the new set of clic tests which I can't find anywhere online.

The dc's school uses click and big maths. I've got the free Math Workout app on my android phone and the dc's hudls and they practice on that. I think you need to pay for higher levels but you can practice times tables for free and there's some quick fire mental arithmetic on there. It's really helped my dc's.

Do you know which test?

mrz Sat 30-Jan-16 13:07:21

The new LearnIt and CLIC tests aren't available on line and cost £50 to purchase.

Richa1 Sat 30-Jan-16 13:08:47

I'm not sure which test but iknow she has had 9 out of 10 consistently since beginning of December maybe before

Richa1 Sat 30-Jan-16 13:11:36

Can anyone purchase these or are they only for schools?

mrz Sat 30-Jan-16 13:26:20

Anyone can purchase them

Without knowing which test I'm afraid it's not possible to tell you what the questions are.

Richa1 Sat 30-Jan-16 13:31:40

Thanks for your help. It is becoming increasingly frustrating that she seems to know the content, by getting 9 but I assume is missing something out or making little mistakes

mrz Sat 30-Jan-16 13:35:02

Which year is she in?

Richa1 Sat 30-Jan-16 13:38:23

I think she is on clic level 6

mrz Sat 30-Jan-16 13:49:46

If it's CLIC 6
Question 1 partitioning a two digit number into tens and ones (units)

62 is 60 and 2

Question 2 ordering numbers
Question 3 missing number in a number sequence eg 10, 12, , 16, 18
Question 3 missing number eg 150, 160, 170, , 190,200
Question 4 circle odd/even numbers
Question 6 fact family addition and subtraction
Question 7 adding a single digit number to a two digit number
Question 8 adding a single digit number to a two digit number crossing ten
Question 9 subtracting a single digit number from a two digit number
Question 10 subtracting a single digit number from a two digit number crossing ten

Thank you

Richa1 Sat 30-Jan-16 13:53:39

It doesn't make sense to me to keep her from moving on when she is getting 9 all the time. Surely this shows understanding

mrz Sat 30-Jan-16 13:57:26

Because each question is testing something different it's important that they get 10/10 three consecutive weeks

Richa1 Sat 30-Jan-16 14:26:55

But it is not the same question wrong each week. It varies she is just making silly mistakes. So perhaps 8 times out of 10 she has had each question correct

mrz Sat 30-Jan-16 15:08:30

It's the same type of question but not the same question (a different set are used each week) which shows she's not secure in this aspect of maths. Does she know which question she's getting wrong?

Richa1 Sat 30-Jan-16 15:21:33

She is not having the same type wrong each week she is having alapse of concentration on any random question
