Succeed with maths – Part 1

6 Summary

Congratulations for making it to the end of another study week of Succeed with maths – Part 1. You are more than halfway (over 50%!) through the course and now would be a good time to think back to how you felt about maths before you started and what you are feeling now. We hope that you can see the difference in your own confidence in tackling maths problems as well as an increasing understanding. All these skills that you are developing will contribute to successful study of many other subject areas – but even if you don’t go on to more study, they will certainly assist you in your everyday life.

At the end of this week you should feel more confident to:

  • convert between fractions, decimals and percentages
  • write numbers as percentages
  • work out a percentage of a number
  • understand how percentages are used in everyday life.
