Revising conversions, area and volume in chapters 10,11,12 for the test next week would be a good idea.

HOT TIPS

  • Make sure you know which formula to use to solve problems. Remember the letters stand for words e.g. V lwh means volume will be the length,width and height multiplied together.=


  • Read the word problems carefully and make sure you are clear about what you need to solve, then solve it in order or (sequentially) (thats a big word for doing it in a sensible order.)


  • Write it down, all of it, the whole working out process needs to be written down, our brains are not made in a way that lets us hold more than a couple of numbers at a time. SO WRITE IT DOWN!!!
