Bar models can help us visualise a problem and work out what operation we need to use to find a missing number. The key to bar models is to label the model with the information you know and the number you are trying to find (which is normally shown with a question mark). Can you use bar models to answer these questions?
In algebra we use letters to represent numbers that we don’t know the value of. A string of numbers and letters joined together by mathematical operations such as + and - is called an algebraic expression. Try the following algebra problems.

When you first learn to find the area of a shape you do it by counting squares. You then learn that you can use formulae to quickly and accurately find the areas of some shapes. Can you remember the formulae and use them reliably? Now find the perimeter and area of all the shapes below (not drawn to scale). Remember to use the correct units of measurement (cm or cm2).
How good are you at tricky area and perimeter questions? Have a go at these calculations.
