Mathbase software has been recommended by SERC for many years.

Simple Numeracy software with small incremental steps is difficult to find. Mathsbase also provides good overlearning and independent use opportunities. We have used Mathbase with many students who have additional needs with great success. THe programmes follow a similar framework, and students dont have too many distractions. Mathsbase can be used at home and school.

To support the launch of our website Richard Glemberg is offering an amazing offer ...................from September 2012 Redbridge Schools can buy all 6 programmes for £32 and you can load them on every machine in your school- take a look at the flyer or contact Richard through his website.
