Mathematics Mastery

Summary

This unit focuses on the properties of number. The unit begins with an investigation leading to square numbers. Roots are explored. The work on index numbers continues; recognising and recalling the squares and cubes, and the square and cube roots of key integers. The laws of indices are developed in the context of number and used to simplify index numbers. With a strong emphasis on the use of imagery and pictorial representations to encourage mastery, this unit develops understanding of factors and multiples of numbers, prime numbers, expressing a number as a product of its prime factors and working out the root of a number when expressed in this form. It explores how to find the highest common factor and the lowest common multiple of a set of numbers and applies this knowledge to solving problems in context.

What people say...

PG Online resources are very well planned and easy to use. Inspection copies are also useful as this enables me to make better choices with our limited budgets.

There were some really lovely questions... which really tested the students' understanding of the work covered and required them to think carefully.
