Before You Watch

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!

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.
