February 3

March 3

April 6

May 1

June 4

July 6

August 2

September 5

October 0

November 3

December 5

Step1: Pick a date. Ex: 23rd June 1986

Step2: Find the number of the month on the list, June is 4.

Step3: Take the date of the month, that is 23

Step4: Take the last 2 digits of the year, that is 86.

Step5: Find out the number of leap years by dividing the last 2 digits of the year by 4, 86 divide by 4 is 21.

Step6: Now add all 4 numbers: 4 + 23 + 86 + 21 = 134.

Step7: Divide, finding the remainder of your quotient Ex: 134 by 7 = 19 remainder

Here's another very cool math trick...

**Step 1**

Ask a friend to think of a number between 1 and 10.

Example: 8

**Step 2**

Get them to double it.

Example: 16

**Step 3**

Ask them to add 10 to the answer.

Example: 26

**Step 4**

Then get them to divide by 2.

Example: 13

**Step 5**

Ask them to tell you what number they now have.

Example: 13

**Step 6**

You subtract 5 from this and tell them what their original number was.

Example: 13 - 5 = 8

Note: If you wish to take turns to practice your mental maths, you can also use 2 and 3 digit numbers to make it harder!

Add up the following numbers out loud, starting at the top and, adding on each number as you go -
