Maths tests are a culmination of all the skills your child has learnt to date in their maths lessons. There are always areas where some children find maths more difficult. The impact of missing out on a section whether it is because of lesson absence or simply not understanding, can have serious implications in the 11+ exam. This app has 6 excellent sections based on many of the areas that come up frequently in the 11+ - Numbers and equations, scales and measures, shapes, analysing information, fractions, percentages and ratios.

Teacher Review

This app is a test practice app. It covers all of the Maths question types that commonly come up in the Maths papers at 11+. The multiple choice maths papers (such as the CEM, Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring computerised paper) are also covered by the skills practiced in this app.
 
There are 675 practice questions, 25 on each topic, enough for quite in depth practice. The mock test allows students to use all the skills practiced, combined as in the real exam. After the test students and parents can check on the answers they got wrong and read a simple explanation, how to answer the question correctly. Parents can then advise students about which areas they need further practice on. Once the required percentage has been met, students can print out a certificate to show their result. 
 
Each topic has a helpful overview which includes key words that students need to know. The diagrams are clear and questions well thought out. There is some repetition of questions which students may find frustrating.
 
Tests are timed so that students can practice completing all the questions in the time they have allocated. Parents will need to support children with this skill. They can be encouraged to go back to questions they found tricky at the end of the test to maximise the mark they achieve.
 
Overall, this is a thorough Maths app that helps by explaining how to do the skill skills needed for the 11+ section. A good resource for revision.
