They can be used by:

  • cover teachers.
  • students who are unable to attend their lesson in person.

Each PowerPoint Presentation includes:

  • Lesson objectives
  • Step-by-step explanations of the subject matter
  • Examples to aid understanding
  • Questions to check understanding
  • Answers to questions, with explanations
  • Suggestions regarding which topic(s) should be moved on to next.

These PowerPoint Presentations are one of several sets of PowerPoint Presentations, which essentially relate to the ‘Number’ section of the Maths specifications. These other sets concern:

  • Place Value and Approximations
  • Calculations
  • Percentages
