Weekly answersAnswers for the weekly problem sheet questions are available under the Downloads link at the bottom of this step. Review your answers and if you got some wrong, review the steps and try again.If you are a teacher and using this course to support your teaching of number, you may be using some of our explanations or the teaching resources with your students. It’s worth capturing where you are trying ideas out and considering why they are, or perhaps are not, working with specific groups of students.Any questions you might have about this week’s topics should also be noted, so you can identify where videos next week may help your understanding. Any unanswered questions can be taken to the Q&A sessions we will run for our maths subject knowledge courses.If you are not a teacher, you will still find value in noting both your successes and any points you wish to cover further.
Teaching resourcesThis collection of SMILE activities contain a variety of games, activities, and investigations to help develop a deep understanding of place value and number bases.
