So it is just as important today that teachers should provide equal opportunities in their classrooms, and try to develop confidence in all of their children.  It also prepares them to be citizens of a multicultural society, and of the world!  Children may display exceptional ability in part or all of mathematics (‘mathematical giftedness’), and need additional enrichment work to keep them challenged and interested.  We never know how far forward that is until we see what they have achieved!  We wish you luck as you continue on this career, and we hope to help you to further develop the most important things to take with you: an informed eye and the desire to keep on learning and inquiring.

In order to write a number—up to 999 in our present system—a Roman needed to know only five symbols rather than ten. The Roman symbols make various simplifications possible: • instead of IIIII they could write V • instead of VV they could write X • instead of XXXXX they could write L • instead of LL they could write C.  When ‘V’ was used for five instead of ‘IIIII’, was one open palm being symbolised rather than five fingers?  Learning how numbers can be split into the sum of parts is a very useful skill which can enhance your understanding of numerical algorithms and will be considered in the next section.

All natural numbers can be written as products of their factors. When you factorise a number you are writing that number as a product of its factors. A prime number has only two factors; 1 and itself, which means it can only be divided by 1 and itself without a remainder. 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19 are prime numbers. When you factorise 24 you get the following factors: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 24. When a number is written as a product of prime numbers, we can refer to the factors as its prime factors.
