Monday – BIDMAS
Our series of lessons will begin by reviewing the concept of BIDMAS, both discretely and holistically, to ensure that students are well versed in the importance of the order of the operations, and how to perform them. From long division to rounding, this class will form the foundation for the remainder of our tutorials.
Tuesday – Fractions, Percentages and Decimals
The second session will look to the trinity of fractions, percentages and decimals, exploring how they relate to one another, and how they can be performed in isolation. Teaching students how to respond to questions on these subjects will serve to prepare them for the 11+.
Wednesday – Averages and Ratio
Session three will examine averages and ratio, looking at more complex questions which relate to the two. From defining mean, mode, range and median, to using them to interpret data sets, the class will provide an understanding of the importance of averages.
Thursday – 2D and 3D Shapes
Session 4 will look at shapes, both 2D and 3D. For the former, we will consider area and perimeter, looking at how to work on this variety of questions. The session will then progress to 3D shapes, where we will examine volume and nets.
Friday – Algebra and word problems
On the final day of our course, we will look to algebra and word problems, considering the way in which the former can help respond to a range of different problems posed in the 11+. Through looking more directly to word problems, this too will lend itself to the more complex problems posed in the 11+ examination.
