About

Hello, I’m David.  I set up 123maths to help those that needed extra support with their basic maths skills. I’m a qualified maths teacher and author. I believe that getting the foundations right is essential.

123maths.co.uk is based on an important principle: that some people benefit from more practice than others.

This online program is based on our successful books.  123maths gives access to each of our ‘books’ and it teaches all the building blocks of number.

Our books:

Plus 1 is the introductory book of the series. The book teaches all the building blocks of numbers, and begins to develop  skills with mental calculations.

Power of 2 begins with teaching number bonds to 10, and then moves on to introducing doubling, halving, addition and subtraction, rounding numbers, multiplying and dividing. It then introduces fractions and looks at worded problems and time. The book is essentially about putting in place the building blocks of number and developing skills with mental calculations.

Perform with Time allows anyone to develop their ability to work with time and is essentially about giving students the skills to deal with time in everyday situations.

Perform with Times Tables – takes an unusual twist on learning times tables using the same successful formula as our other books – the over-learning principle. The book supports students who have struggled to pick up learning their times-tables facts.  It is not intended to teach the facts to someone meeting them for the first time.
