This is a simplified list of mathematical skills that pupils should have. It has been designed so that each idea has five levels making it visually easy to see where a pupil is now and what they need to do to improve.

Please note that the main objective of creating this inventory grid was to produce something that provided visual impact. Each of the ideas or concepts has been broken down into five levels. This has been done for consistency so the differences in the difficulty between levels is not the same in all cases. Please let us know if you have any suggestions for improvement.

The activity buttons will take you to the nearest match activity on the Transum website. The activity is not always an exact match for the statement but is the closest available.

This page should print nicely for you records or can be used online. The page should remember your ticks from one visit to the next. It does this by using Local Storage so the information is saved only on the computer you are working on right now.

Transum subscribers can use this page as part of the Class Admin system keeping a record of progress for each and every student in the class.
