Checking Understanding questions are designed to help you check your own knowledge of terminology, understanding of key concepts and principles, and your mastery of important skills.
Reasoning and Problem-solving questions encourage you to use and apply mathematical concepts in solving mathematical puzzles or problems in real life situations.
Learning and Teaching solutions include responses to children's errors and misunderstandings, development of teaching ideas, evaluation of teaching approaches, and consideration of objectives to promote understanding.
