Succeed with maths – Part 1

8 Summary

Congratulations for making it to the end of another week. There has been a lot to take in this week and you can really help yourself with all these new rules by keeping them to hand and referring back to them. Eventually, without too much effort, you’ll just be able to apply them without looking them up. Next week, the final week of this course, you will expand on your new skills with negative numbers to look at multiplication, division and negative powers. See you there!

This week should have helped to make feel more confident to:

  • understand negative numbers using a number line
  • use negative numbers in different contexts
  • work out everyday problems that involve negative numbers using addition and subtraction.
