This video is designed to be the first one you watch. It introduces a 4-step method of solving problems that is used throughout this series of videos. So, if you’re new to Maths Tune Up! congratulations, you’re in the right place!

## Before You Watch

## Now What?

Think for a moment about what was covered in the video you just watched. Did you understand the concepts? Do you want to watch it again? A good next step is to check that your foundation in algebra is solid. Many areas of mathematics, especially those you need at university, will build upon this basic knowledge.

## But When I am Going to Use This

The 4-step problem-solving technique is a systematic method of approaching complex questions. In mathematics, such questions are referred to as problems. You'll find this technique useful in and beyond mathematics, wherever problems must be solved.
