Do I need any particular skills or experience?

  • This course is for beginners
  • This course is suitable for beginners and improvers

By the end of the course I should be able to:

  • Consolidate your understanding of the four basic operations.
  • Interpret data from charts and timetables to solve a problem.
  • identify which maths processes should be used when looking at everyday situations.

How will I be taught?

  • Teaching methods depends on the equipment available in the room ... will it be a classroom? is there a iWB? do I provide the printed work sheets myself? do I submit them for printing? what about calculators, coloured pencils pens etc? Sorry Sadie .. bit clueless here....

What kind of feedback can I expect?
