The unit starts with two lessons focusing on the application of mathematics to household financial matters including the calculation of VAT, profit and loss, tax and simple interest. Rates are explored in the context of rates of pay along with the calculation of income tax. Compound measures including speed and density are explored, calculated and applied before conversion between compound units is tackled. Standard form is used to express numbers; converting between both forms, and calculations with numbers in standard form are considered in a real-life context. The use of a calculator is supported.
