Some children naturally enjoy calculation, while others do not. Calculation is important to everyone and my purpose is to motivate children to improve their calculation ability. I can make things from simple tools to game-based ones, depending on their needs.

Attend regular level check (£2):
Calculating with ease is the key for getting children to like arithmetic or maths. Children enjoy doing what is fun and this motivates them when they see themselves improving. They can come to my place and check how much their calculation ability has improved. I will give them stamps when they pass each level. The calculation competition will also motivate them.


Leave it to a cash register?
You might think that a cash register cannot make mistakes and so you pay what is shown. However, sometimes prices are wrongly registered and so the total amount that the cash register shows is wrong. How would you notice this? You might think that you do not have to be able to learn calculation because you have a calculator or mobile phone but do you use it when you only buy a couple of things?

Is it really a good deal?
The original marked price might be £2. The deal proudly says "two for £5". Do you notice anything? If you buy two, you are paying £1 extra. I have seen this kind of mistake in supermarkets. You might be actually overpaying, while thinking that you are saving money.

Which one becomes free?
For example, consider a "2 for 1, cheapest free" deal. Let's say you want to buy two items at £3 each and two for £2 each. If you buy them at the same time, you are paying £6. If you buy two items at £3 each first and then buy two £2 items later, you are paying £5. You could save money at a shop or supermarket like this.
