  • Maths Grids – featuring multiplication grids, and addition and subtracation grids.

  • Number Sets – natural numbers, whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, irrational numbers, real numbers, complex numbers. Also why 0.9 recurring is the same as 1.

  • Prime Numbers – divisible only by themselves and 1.

  • Complex Numbers – real and imaginary parts in one number. Square roots of negative numbers.

  • Messing With Infinity – best left well alone.
