Knowledge in everyday life

4.4 Summary

In this section, you have had the opportunity to work on some mathematical activities yourself. This should have enabled you to:

  • reflect on how you approach mathematics and what helps you to work on a piece of mathematics;

  • remind yourself of those pieces of mathematics that you can work at successfully;

  • identify aspects of mathematics that you can strengthen as you work through the later blocks of this course;

  • get an idea of what is involved in knowing mathematics, including accessing your ‘mental screen’.
