Part 5: The QTS General Arithmetic test

Description

A guide to the QTS Numeracy Skills Test for trainee teachers, looking at the type of arithmetic questions they might face, and how best to tackle them.

Maths consultant Malcolm Shay looks at some of the general arithmetic questions in the QTS Numeracy Skills Test. He explains that, of all the maths in the test, this will probably be the most familiar to non-maths specialists, but that it's still important to read the questions carefully to work out exactly what is being asked.

The questions tend to be set in school-based scenarios, and Malcolm works through a sample question about a teacher planning a school trip, showing some techniques that may be useful in other questions.
