Congratulations for making it to the end of another week. You may not have realised it, but you have now started on groundwork that will lead you to taking your first steps with algebra. This is a fundamental tool of maths and is used in many different subject areas and other, possibly unexpected subjects. In fact anywhere you want to work out an unknown value from numbers that you already know will probably need some algebra. This is just the start of your journey though, and this course takes you through it step-by-step to help you build your confidence. What you should now feel more confident in doing is:
- recognising patterns in a variety of different situations
- using word formulas to help solve a problem
- writing your own word formulas to help solve a problem.
You can now go to Week 4.
