The presentation would be helpful in explaining new concepts as well as revising previous knowledge as part of a whole class session. There are built in opportunities for pupils to discuss ideas in pairs, share reasoning and practice short activities independently. Some deeper 'mastery' questions are included to help children connect learning and there are a couple word problems to solve. A matching activity completes the unit, which could be a couple of days or a week. Children are encouraged to evaluate their understanding when they have completed the unit.
