Week 6 Numeracy 


Our Numeracy topic for this week is temperature and negative numbers. Your booklet is attached below. You don't need to print the booklet out - you can answer the questions in your books. 


Negative numbers are any numbers that are below zero e.g. -3. They are often used in the context of temperature (especially here in Northern Ireland as it's often very cold!). 


These videos will help explain negative numbers to you.
