Congratulations on making it to the end of this week. You started by warming up your mathematical skills with some puzzles. By working your way logically through these puzzles to the answer, you have made a great start in honing problem-solving skills that you may not even have been aware that you had. As well as this, you’ve begun your study of the foundations of maths. This new knowledge will provide a solid base from which to move on to Week 2. In Week 2, you’ll return to problem solving and also the essential maths operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division), using these in some everyday examples.
You should now feel that you can:
- tackle maths activities with more confidence
- use your calculator for the four operations of +, –, × and ÷
- use place value and number-lines to understand numbers
- use rounding and estimation.
You can now go to.
