Have you ever wondered how many pizzas you should order? Maths can help you work that out.

Have you ever gone to a shop and seen something that was 30%, 50% or 70% off and didn't exactly know whether you could afford it or not? Some simple maths could have given you the answer.

To work out problems like that we need to have 2 skills: First we need to understand fractions and percentages and what they actually mean. Second, we need to have the number skills to work out a solution.

In this course we will spend the first part of each lesson improving our number skills of multiplying and dividing by whole numbers. The second part will be about using our skills in the context of fractions and percentages.

We will use both Education Perfect and Maths Buddy to support you.

This course is designed towards Level 3 and 4 of the curriculum. If you have found Maths easy so far this year and like to work at a higher level, you should select 4MATa or 5MAT.
