5 Session 4 summary

You have now completed Session 4, ‘Shape and space’. If you have identified any areas that you need to work on, please ensure you refer back to this section of the course.

You should now be able to:

  • rearrange furniture in a room
  • find out how much paint you need to repaint a wall
  • find out how much carpet you need to re-carpet a room
  • plan your garden
  • read maps and understand scale to get you from one place to another.

All of the skills above will help you with tasks in everyday life. Whether you are at home or at work, number skills are an essential skill to have.

Now try the end-of-course quiz to test your learning of the entire course and hopefully gain your badge. Good luck!
