Customer Review:

"I have been impressed by the progress made by pupils using the Rapid Maths programme… Most teachers have found the multi-sensory resources easy to use and very appealing to their students. The pupils themselves have developed in self-confidence and many are beginning to enjoy maths for the first time."
