Mathematics Mastery

This is a free unit (full price £75)

This unit builds on the work completed in Unit 1 with integers, by extending into decimal values.  Initially place value is explored and decimal numbers compared and ordered.  The four mathematical operations are considered in the context of decimals and consolidated through intelligent practice. The impact of multiplying and dividing by powers of 10 is explored and place value is used to solve reasoning problems.  Techniques with rounding numbers, significant figures and decimal places are developed and the use of approximations to support problems is considered. Contextualised problems help develop a range of written methods to multiply and divide decimal numbers.

What people say...

Early career teachers will find these an invaluable resource to support developing their practice, knowing the material is approached with a consistent pedagogy that has stood the test of time, from a team of experienced teachers. Over time they can customise the lessons to better address the needs of their different classes and growing sense of themselves as teachers of mathematics.

Open questions feature regularly so that students learn to see the possibilities in a question. This is essential for solving problems and tackling unfamiliar questions.
