18

N

**Maths for everyday - first principles**

The aim of this workshop is to explain the basic maths operators and the BODMAS rule, and to show how fractions, decimals, division, and multiplication of numbers are linked and related to each other. In seeing the relationship and similarity, it is hoped that students will not feel as overwhelmed with so many seemingly different rules, and will be able to apply the operators more easily and quickly in everyday situations

19

N

**First steps in numbers (Entry level 2)**

The aim of this workshop is to provide an overview of multiple basic maths operations used in everyday situations, eg: time, distance, weight, and money.

It will indirectly cover fractions, decimals, and percentages as ways to describe probability

23

N

**Currency conversion and foreign exchange**
