Power of 2
Power of 2 is a coaching manual which allows anyone to deliver individual support. It teaches all the mental maths needed by the new Mathematics Curriculum. Power of 2 is designed to put in place the building blocks of number and develop mental calculation skills.
The Power of 2 book has been used with pupils aged 8 and upwards, up to adult basic skills.
The book is designed to be used 4 or 5 times a week, with each session lasting 10 to 15 minutes. Power of 2 requires that each question is answered correctly on three consecutive occasions on different days. On each page of the book there is a space for working out solutions, but pupils are encouraged to carry out the calculations without using pen and paper.
Power of 2 is designed to be used by parents or schools.
Power of 2 has not been included in any systematic reviews into the effectiveness of educational interventions.
