Introducing Bev Judson
I am a teacher based in Warrington and before I took early retirement from teaching in the classroom I was a Head of Maths in two secondary schools, an Assistant Headteacher and of course a Maths Teacher.
I currently work as an hourly paid tutor with Liverpool Hope University where I teach on the Maths Enhancement Course for aspiring Secondary Maths teachers and assist with visiting and observing student teachers on the Maths PGCE course.

From experience, I have found that focusing on the 12 mental arithmetic questions can be the key in most cases to passing the QTS Numeracy Test.
Most problems occur due to:
However, learning or re-learning techniques in how to calculate in your head is the key. A bit of coaching and practice almost always resolves these issues. I have developed resources for the mental arithmetic questions and am continuing to do so.
So get practising! The children you will teach are expected to do so, so what is there to fear!
Something to think about
Do not imagine that mathematics is harsh and crabbed, and repulsive to common sense. It is merely the etherealisation of common sense.
