Teach Yourself (6)

Resource type Decimals
In this unit we shall look at the meaning of decimals, and how they are related to fractions. We shall then look at rounding to given numbers of decimal places or significant figures. Finally we shall take a brief look at irrational numbers.
Resource type Fractions - adding and subtracting
In this unit we shall see how to add and subtract fractions. We shall also see how to add and subtract mixed fractions by turning them into improper fractions.
Resource type Fractions - basic ideas
What are fractions? Fractions are ways of writing parts of whole numbers. For example if we take a pizza, and divide it up equally between 4 people, each person will have 1/4 or, written in words, one quarter of the pizza.
Resource type Fractions - multiplying and dividing
In this unit we shall see how to multiply fractions. We shall also see how to divide fractions by turning the second fraction upside down.
Resource type Percentages
In this unit we shall look at the meaning of percentages and carry out calculations involving percentages. We will also look at the use of the percentage button on calculators.
Resource type Sigma notation
Sigma notation is a method used to write out a long sum in a concise way. In this unit we look at ways of using sigma notation, and establish some useful rules.

Third Party Resources (2)

Resource type biomathtutor
biomathtutor presents students with a filmed bioscience-based scenario and guides them through some of the mathematics they need to understand and grow confident and competent in using routinely. The case-study scenario, covering practical aspects of haematology and microbiology, is presented via a narrated film, 24 min in length, but divided up into short sections. The film tracks the diagnosis and treatment of a student with anaemia and a throat infection and links the clinical findings and diagnoses to 33 interactive questions and relevant maths tutorials. An additional 24 interactive questions cover the same range of basic mathematical concepts presented in similar biological contexts, with a view to reinforcing students' learning. biomathtutor was developed by Vicki Tariq (University of Central Lancashire), John Heritage and Tom Roper (University of Leeds), Andrew Bond (University of Westminster), Mike Tribe (University of Sussex) and the EBS Trust. It was funded by HEFCE through its National Teaching Fellowship Scheme.
