Government Unveils New Primary School Maths Test

Recommended Posts

It would be stronger if it stuck to factual criticism without the largely-bogus narrative.

Question 1 is good, and Q2 amusing. Unfortunately the author comprehensively discredits him/herself in the narrative thereafter.

That's Ed Balls told.

Here's one for 5 marks (that will prove to be more valuable in later life than the 12 times table).

Janet and John bought a 2 bedroom house in 2000 for £50,000, in 2015 they plan to sell it for £100,000.

Janet and John want to buy a 3 bedroom house that was £150,000 in 2000 and is priced in 2015 at £300,000.

Janet and John will need a mortgage to make up the difference between the selling price of their house and the one they want to buy.

How big would the mortgage have been with 2000 house prices? [1]

How big will the mortgage be with 2015 house prices? [1]

Would they be better off with 2000 house prices or 2015? [3]

Agreed - it seems to suggest Labour are free of blame. Sometimes both ends of a sh1tty stick are sh1tty...

We really do have sound bite politics in this country. Has anyone seen a British politician show a graph or explain what happened in the crash. I have seen Yanis Varoufakis on Boom Bust a few times. It is easier to find out where he stands on things than it is Osborne and Balls. They just make a statement and don't back it up with any figure or their thinking behind it.

I have watched quite a few Adair Turner talks on youtube can't our politicians do similar?

depends on the interest rate.

Those numbers imply 4.7% HPI, which doesn't seem all that unreasonable.

Substitute 2005 (or even 2004) for 2015 in there and you get what's genuinely troublesome. At least for those of us well clear of London.
