There are 6 exercise sheets and an examination-style assessment test, each with answers included in this unit.
Our resources apply the principles of Mastery throughout, creating a rich and deep learning experience. Find out more about Mastery with our quick guide.
This unit covers the building blocks of number; dealing with integer values. With a focus on the clarity of explanations and developing mastery, the unit aims to ensure that students are fluent with these critical basics. Integers, both positive and negative, and place value are explored and these concepts developed and used within reasoning problems. The use of the four mathematical operations are considered and consolidated through intelligent practice. Contextualised problems help develop a range of written methods to multiply and divide numbers and to find a remainder. The relationship between operations is explored and used to solve problems. The hierarchy of operations is discussed with conventional notation used to support this work.

What people say...
Starters are designed to encourage the independent retrieval of pre-requisite knowledge, requiring students to think rather than just be told, again.
Heather Davis. Mathematics Education Consultant,
Supply teachers or cover supervisors can be given the PowerPoint presentations to run the lesson. I only wish I had this available when I was head of department. I would have been able to set work quickly, knowing that the material was covered, explanations were sound and the practice questions were well supported.
