My dc was doing a practice vr paper today 'First Past The Post' and she got a few maths questions wrong. I also agreed with her answers until I realised they were using BIDMAS to solve the sum. To be honest I had no clue about BIDMAS my teenage son had to explain it to me. DC has always answered maths questions from left to right! Does anyone know if Bucks use BIDMAS? I now don't know whether to teach my dc the theory of this as it may totally confuse her and/or slow down her answering. What do you think?
2x3+4x5=26. Stating that it's 50 is simply wrong. This isn't a matter of choice.
