The Ideas that are Changing Politics
There has been an extraordinary surge in the study of behaviour from evolutionary biologists, neurologists and game theorists, but this has been largely divorced from the political debate. David Willetts will draw on the latest research from these disciplines to explain what Government can and cannot do to influence our behaviour. David Willetts is shadow secretary of state for innovation, universities and skills and has been the MP for Havant since 1992. He was shadow secretary of state for wor
KS2 Numeracy SATs revision 2
The levels test basic skills - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division (without a calculator!) - along with using brackets and questions where a missing number needs to be found. One level tests tables, and finally there are some questions where a calculator may be used, against the clock. Each question uses an on-screen keypad for entering the answers. The order of questions is randomised. Progress is tracked and numerous awards given for achievement at each level.
