Don't you just wish there was a program designed to take the hassles out of achieving that goal?
That's what we thought. But since we couldn't find one anywhere else, we decided to design one ourselves.

Never heard of BlitzIt Mathematics?
That's not really surprising: this is the first time this set of resources has been offered, anywhere.
We don't sell through third parties, so this is the only place where you can get your hands on this new resource.
We have been creating world-class resources for teaching mathematics since 1998, and they are being used all over Australia and overseas.
This is our biggest project to date, and one we are really excited to tell you about.
What IS BlitzIt Mathematics?
Simply put, BlitzIt Maths is an integrated system organised into a whole-year program, comprising printed student workbooks and online digital resources.
The Radar Books (3 and 4) are the first stage of BlitzIt Maths, and are focused exclusively on the teaching of mental mathematics skills, including all the number facts which students are required to memorise.
