Doing Foundation non-calc in two weeks. A teacher I had said that a good portion of GCSE Maths (even higher) is knowing your times tables. I don't know them, but I don't take a huuuge amount of time to add until I find 8 x 8 or do 10 x 8 then take away 16 or whatever. I do make quite a few mistakes when I do calculations though so there is that. At the moment I'm making sure I've got basic facts in my memory such as 5 miles is 8km and that a reflex angle is over 180 degrees, because that kind of stuff doesn't stick with me and I lose easy marks over it. My attempts at trying to learn some of the stuff I find harder haven't yielded massive results and I'm kind of limited when it comes to time, so I think a better preparation strategy might be making sure I know the basic facts? Like, I've tried watching videos on equations but I still don't know how to do the harder ones...
I never learned my times tables. Should I try at the last minute?!
