I seem to be missing all the values in the worksheets. Do I need a more up to date version of microsoft than 2003 or is there something else I need to know?

In my opinion the appearance of the slides is spectacular. The information was magnificent. The questions were so good that I would dab for those questions

Very good material sir but there seems to be a mistake on Exercise 1 question 4 answer. Just wanted to let you know.

Thank you so much for sharing your resources, spotted a minor error on Y9 Factorising quadratics ppt. Type 5 is Pairwise on the master sheet but dealt with as type 6. Intelligent guesswork is part 6 but dealt with as type 5. Thanks again
