6 Summary of Week 4

Congratulations for making it to the end of this week and completing the first quiz that will count towards your badge. You should have a great sense of achievement already, with all the new skills and knowledge that you worked on over the first four weeks of the course. You’ve come from understanding how numbers are put together to carrying out calculations with fractions in a very short time. In the next four weeks, you’ll move your attention to percentages and negative numbers. See you there!

After studying Week 4, you should now feel confident to:

  • perform addition and subtraction with fractions
  • perform multiplication and division with fractions
  • understand how fractions can be used in everyday life.

You are now half way through the course. The Open University would really appreciate your feedback and suggestions for future improvement in our optional end-of-course survey [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] , which you will also have an opportunity to complete at the end of Week 8. Participation will be completely confidential and we will not pass on your details to others.

You can now go to Week 5.
