Hi,
Has anyone queried this question.... how do we know 19th of July is a Friday, even though they tell u the zoo closes early on a Friday in June and July there is no clue in the opening times or the question itself.

My dd went by the opening times for that period and put down 5 hours, but answer was 3 hours as it must be a Friday. :?

The only thing that I can think of is that 19th July 2013 was a Friday, so the authors are assuming that you are using the current year. But I agree that it is not obviously from the question itself, and I wouldn't expect a child to have to assume something like this.

Hi,
I have this book, but not using it yet, it says:

On Friday 19th July, Katie arrived at 11.30am and leaves half an hour before it closes. how long does she spend at the Zoo?

Must be a typo in your copy...

Hi,
Thanks for replying, there is definately no mention of friday in the q, so it is a typo, this is the second typo we've noticed, there was a mistake in the answers in the earlier questions.

thanks again

Hello, can you remember what the other mistake was, as I have no Friday either, and am a terrible self doubter, so you will be saving me 15 minutes of trying to figure out another way!

That is really scarily coincidental, as I photocopied that exact page on its own for ds3 to work on for area practise this afternoon..it was still on the scanner on the page! Thank you for the measurement.

Hi,
In Test 1 Q4c the 90cm2 was missing and in the answer at the back it says shape B has an area of 12.4cm2 but it is 2cmx9.5cm=19cm2 according to my calculation....that is also typo.

The answer to 4b is also incorrect it says 16.4cm is the perimeter....am I GOING MAD. We did this a while ago and I forgot to mention the rest of the typos on the forum.

Who can I write to in order to notify them and bring this to the attention of others using these books, as have never come across this many typos in one book. As you sit there like a fool trying to work out where we have gone wrong when it is a typo :x normally you dont expect that!

We are upto Test 5 ...a bit disillusioned. :roll:

Thank you for sharing...it is very frustrating, hopefully as some people had the 90 measurement they have rectified the errors in the latest print.
