Does it work?

A major part of its success is that it gradually builds up skills and knowledge, and it therefore has a huge impact on confidence and belief.

What topics does the book cover?
Perform with Time is a comprehensive teaching manual for Time which begins by teaching telling the time in many different formats. It looks at both 12 and 24 hour clocks, reading digital and analogue time, working out how long events last, and also includes a section on world time. Seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years are also covered in detail.
- Time in many differing formats
- 12 and 24 hour clock
- Digital and Analogue time
- How long events last
How is the book used?
Full instructions and example pages are included in each book, but essentially Power of Time requires that each question is answered correctly on three consecutive occasions on different days. When a question is answered correctly a tick should be placed on the line, a question answered incorrectly is marked with a dot. On each page of the book there is space for working out solutions, but students should be encouraged to carry out the calculations in this book without using pen and paper. It is not intended that certain pages should be used in isolation. Perform with Time has been found to work best when it is used 4 or 5 times a week, with each session lasting for about 10 to 15 minutes.
- Repetition through each question is being answered correctly on three different occasions
- Questions to be answered on different days
- Achievements through tangible success
- Students encouraged to do calculations mentally
Is there a best way to use the book?
Effectively no; the book is designed to deal with real life situations. There are lots of different ways the ‘Power of 2‘ books are used. Here are a few:
- Parents work through the books with their child at home
- Schools have used the books as part of buddy-schemes or peer-coaching projects
- The books are used at school and delivered by teaching assistants or volunteers.
- Prep schools use our books to boost learning for all their pupils.
- … And, of course, combinations of the above.
