In today’s blog post, we will assess different types of math questions, as well as providing advice on answering them.

Multi-Step Mental Math Problems

Mental math questions can be a source of confusion and difficulty, especially when it comes to multi-step mental math problems. This is something that was definitely reinforced by the statistics that were drawn from the exam bodies in regard to math results. Read on for more information about this. 

While questions change from year to year, the same type of questions feature in school math papers. This is why it is important to look at areas where children have struggled so that you can get your child to focus on these areas when practicing math questions. 

A good example of this is in a 2016 paper, where a lot of children struggled with Question 4 on Paper 3 for their Math KS2 test. This was a mental math question, which required four steps. Viewed individually, the steps were very simple. However, the question perplexed many students last year, with a lot of children getting it incorrect. 

The likely reason why so many failed to get the question right is that they did not take all of the four steps that were stated. The best way to ensure your child is prepared for questions like this is to present math questions in innovative and new ways so that they have experience in dealing with questions that may be presented in a daunting or different way. 

Of course, you can’t show your child every single type of question, but by exposing them to a greater variety of question types, you encourage them to apply diverse strategies and skills. Puzzles can be a fun way to help with this, such as https://www.pennydellpuzzles.com/sudoku/subscriptions/ and other types of math puzzles.

What Sort Of Questions Can You Expect From An Arithmetic Test?

We are going to take a look at taking an arithmetic paper in further detail so that you know what to expect. 

An arithmetic paper is designed to test your number and calculation skills. Some of the maths questions will test your use of calculation methods, others will require you to know some number facts, for example, multiplication tables. It is a good idea to practice with past math papers so that you can get familiar with the sort of questions you will be asked. 

The questions will get more difficult as you turn the pages. Start questions include the likes of 869 + 200 and 56 divided by 8. More challenging questions may be something along the lines of 2/4 + 6/8 or 1971 divided by 27. You will notice that there are two marks available for multiplication and division questions. It is important to show your working out when doing these questions. If the final answer is incorrect, but you have followed the correct method, you will still get a point.

To conclude, math papers test a range of skills, so preparation is key.

Cut The Time It Takes To Care For Your Garden

We all want to make sure our garden doesn’t reflect too badly on our home. As such, taking care of the essential garden maintenance should always be a concern if you got plenty of greenery to care for. However, if you’re not the most green-thumbed of people, it’s easy to get frustrated with how much time you can end up spending out there. For that reason, we’re looking at ways you can make sure your garden gets the care it needs without you having to spend as much time out there.

Split your schedule up

If you leave everything too long, there will be a greater sense of urgency about having to do more. Do a little bit twice a week and you will find you have fewer of those long gardening days. Find out the basics of garden maintenance, then create a routine for the month, giving yourself fewer tasks to do each time you get out there, but get out there more regularly.

Know when to tackle weeds

Weeds are going to be one of the most persistent and time-consuming problems in any garden. If you really want to get rid of them, the recommendation is to dig them right out at the roots, but not everyone is going to do that. Aside from using natural weedkiller to help diminish them, pluck them out of the soil after it rains and when it’s moist to make it easier to pull them.

Use more efficient tools

Good equipment makes all the difference. There’s nothing wrong with a motor-powered lawnmower if you’re simply looking to get the job of cutting your grass done. However, a good string trimmer can do that, as well as helping cut back bushes and overgrown plants all while standing. Check it out and see if it can’t help you. Good multitasking tools can help you get your gardening over and done with much more quickly.

Plant sensibly

Does your gardening routine see you going from one end of the property to the other to reach those plants that need the most care? If that’s the case, it might just be poor planning that’s getting in your way more than anything. Space-effective planting, such as grouping plants near to the home can help make it much more efficient. Take a look at how to group your plants effectively.

Know when to prune

If you have trees in the garden, check to see if they’re evergreens. Trees like yew will grow continuously for months and then stop growing usually towards the middle of fall. Get to know when your trees stop growing and then take the time to prune them. If you prune them too early, their growth cycle won’t have finished yet and, as a result, you’ll have to prune them again before too long.

To end up with a good-looking garden, you do need to spend some time out there. However, with the tips above you can at least make sure entire days aren’t going by out there.

The Pandemic Redefines Loyalty For Brands


The coronavirus pandemic shows no signs of disappearing. With contagion and spread rates have been slowing down all around the world, regions are already facing the second CVODI wave. For businesses, the situation is challenging to manage. Surviving the first wave of lockdown and quarantine hasn’t been easy. A lot of small companies and independent businesses have been forced to take drastic measures, such as letting teams go, to recoup some of the losses. Others have not been able to reopen. The pandemic has been the last straw for struggling businesses that have now gone bankrupt. 

Yet, even if you’ve been able to reopen your companies, the survival path is paved with obstacles. For brands, surviving and keeping the business afloat is a priority. Most countries and regions have made grants available to support struggling businesses. Entrepreneurs can expect to find small financial relief to help with rent payments or the introduction of new health requirements. Investors are also joining the economic support, through crowdfunding platforms and crypto investments to protect the global economy. There is, however, only so much you can achieve with financial assistance. For a start, monetary aid is limited, as most states are already running high debts. Additionally, ad hoc cash flow boosts can provide the long-term stability businesses need for their recovery. If businesses are going to survive the pandemic loss, they need to build a supportive network. They need to refine business loyalty to create the sturdy foundations of their post-pandemic growth.

Consider negotiating payment delays

What costs do companies face as they plan their recovery from the pandemic? The first and most crucial factor is that the coronavirus crisis has shattered the economic stability. People have been staying at home, avoiding unnecessary purchases. While we’ve passed the first virus wave, a lot of customers are still cautious about visiting shops and buying new items. As such, it can be tricky to build a new strategy on an uncertain path. Most tips for businesses to survive a rocky economy suggest negotiating payment delays. Companies that are in a commercial lease can reach out to their landlord to review their options. It’s in landlords’ best interest to keep their tenants, even if it means decreasing the monthly rent. Suppliers are also open to negotiations, especially as many can’t afford to lose a contract. Yet, offering payment delays or discounts can be beneficial to keep both parties in business. The process can be challenging, but now is the time to build new loyal connections with your business partners so that everybody can survive. 

Don’t sacrifice quality

The customers who loved your brand and products before the pandemic are keen to return to the businesses they trust. Keeping their trust in a post-pandemic world can be challenging. It is tricky to maintain consistent product quality when you are running on a tight budget. However, loyal customers are not ready to compromise on the quality of your products and services. Many appreciate that you can’t meet the pre-pandemic production volume and pace as you need to accommodate delays for supply sourcing, health and safety regulations, social distancing practices. As such, manufacturers will need to reduce production volumes to maintain quality. But you can reassure customers by turning delays to your advantage and emphasizing your commitment to health. For instance, quality controls now need to include contagion checks and decontamination processes to guarantee the safety of all. 

Don’t keep bad news secret

Now, more than ever, delay and production mishaps are likely to happen. You only need one person to be contaminated for the entire production process to be put on hold until the situation has cleared. As a result, your customers will potentially face unexpected delays. However, the last thing you want is to hide the truth from them. Don’t let them wait and get frustrated as the delivery never happens. On the contrary, when a customer asks where their order is, you have already failed to earn their loyalty. Instead, embracing a policy of complete and total transparency with your customers can transform the situation. Sharing your limitations openly will help them prepare for eventual frictions. You could, for instance, let them know that your main supplier is having problems meeting your volume demands. The process doesn’t serve as a blaming game and pointing fingers exercise. On the contrary, it explains that you may not be able to finish production on time. You can even share an estimate of your worst-case scenario so that your audience is in the know. 

Survival in a post-pandemic world is all about creating a loyal network to grow. Loyalty is built in honest truths, from sharing your financial struggles with your landlord to ask for a discount to informing customers about production changes that can cause delays while maintaining quality. The lesson is that you can’t expect to stick with your brand because they liked your post-pandemic performance. Instead, convince them to stick with you because you are doing everything possible to make it work.

5 Hobbies That Will Make You Feel Good

Life is full of stress for most people. We work all day long, and we try to fit in the time for a family and a social life. In all of that time, we have to find at least an hour a day to do something for ourselves. We’re told that self-care is important, well, a hobby is the best self-care there is!

Hobbies give you a place to be at a certain time. They give you fulfilment around everything else that you do in your life – something that’s for you! Whether you enjoy reading about the Nissan Sileighty or watching it race on TV, or you plan to take up skydiving in your spare time, you need a hobby that will interest you and ignite passion in your life. Below, we’ve put together five hobbies that will make a difference to the way that you feel about your time.

  1. Learn To Play An Instrument

Music soothes the soul, so why wouldn’t learning how to play an instrument enhance your cultural education? Playing music has so many benefits for the mind as much as your body, and it creates a huge sense of achievement when you learn how to play something new. You can watch YouTube and self-teach any instrument if you know what you are looking for, too! Dance party, anyone?

  1. Study A Language

Learning a language in the pursuit of travelling the world and actually using it can help you in so many ways. You get to widen your knowledge while widening your perception of the world around you. You can meet new people and know how to communicate, and you can even download language learning apps on your phone to learn on the go.

  1. Put Your Fitness First

Often in men, skincare, health and fitness are a big deal. What is lacking in physical health almost always translates to something lacking in mental health, too. It’s so important that you know where to turn when you need a break from all of the pent-up stress, and pouring energy into running or other physical activity will flood the brain with happy hormones. Stress-busting can begin in the gym for you!

  1. Start Cooking

The percentage of male celebrity chefs to females is higher for a good reason, and it has nothing to do with skills in the kitchen. Men and women can cook as well as each other, but that doesn’t mean that men can’t be the best! Get your creativity out onto the table – literally. Learn to cook. Hit some cookery classes and baking classes and get out of the house. Once you pay for a course like that, you can spend time really enjoying yourself and pushing all of your pain into food. It’s worth it, with delicious consequences.

  1. Go Back To School

It doesn’t matter if you are in the peak of your life, there is always room for learning. You can go back to school and get another degree or learn a new skill, and add to your bow!

There are lots of things you can do to make your store stand out from the crowd and make a profit through selling snacks. With that in mind, continue reading to discover some of the areas of consideration and some key pieces of advice.

Change your displays on a regular basis – One of the most important things you need to do is keep your displays interesting.

This is a great way to encourage purchases and to boost your profits in the process. 

Store your snacks properly – You need to make sure that your snacks are stored correctly. The type of storage solution you need depends on the snacks you’re selling.

Offer samples – If you believe in the amazing taste and texture of your food – which I am sure you do – offer samples! There is no better way to encourage people to purchase the snacks that you sell than by showing them just how incredible they are. Once someone tastes a sample, they are not going to be able to refuse purchasing some for themselves, right?

Track the impact of your efforts – When selling any sort of product, it is always important to track the impact of your efforts. From the different displays you use to the various products you offer as samples, it is important to determine how effective your approaches are so you can figure out what works and what doesn’t. After all, you are never going to be able to move your business forward if you do not get a handle on how it is performing right now, right?

Highlight healthy eating – Last but not least, if you have healthy snacks available, this is something that you should definitely highlight. As a nation, we have become more concerned with healthy eating, and a lot of people are more cautious about what they eat. However, the trouble for a lot of people is they feel like stores rarely have any healthy snacks. This is, therefore, a good target market to try and aim for. 

So there you have it: some of the different factors that you should keep in mind when selling snacks at your business. We hope that this information has proven useful for you and that it can help you to boost your profits at your business.

5 Biohacking Supplements You Need to Incorporate

Originally posted by Baasimah Sabir on iveeapp.com| Jun 5, 2020 

by Baasimah Sabir | Jun 5, 2020 | Uncategorized | 0 commentsbiohacking supplement

What is biohacking, you might ask? Well, it’s a DIY way to make changes in your lifestyle for improved health and wellness. These changes are usually small and incremental, which means you can start incorporating them right now! One way to ease this process is by using biohacking supplements, and here are the most important ones you should be taking right now. (Before you get too excited, be sure to chat with your doctor about which ones work best with your lifestyle!)

1. Increase Focus

For improving your mental health, try taking biohacking supplements such as Bacopa Monnieri or Caffeine with Theanine. Bacopa Monnieri is a traditionally used plant in Indian medicine, which helps to improve memory and anxiety. L-Theanine is extracted from tea plants and can improve cognitive function. As a bonus, it can also help reduce mental fatigue and stress. Try taking Caffeine with Theanine in the morning about 30 minutes before you begin your day. This way, you can see its effects as your daily routine progresses.

2. Have a Healthy Heart 

Carnitine, specifically L-Carnitine, is a naturally occurring amino acid that your body produces. Taking this biohacking supplement can help improve your heart’s functions and reduce or relieve symptoms of congestive heart failure and myocarditis. Grapeseed is another biohacking supplement you can take to improve blood flow, lower blood pressure, and oxidative damage. 

3. Lose Fat

If you are trying to lose weight, but need extra help, try taking fiber supplements. Fiber is filling and can reduce pesky cravings. Fiber supplements can also help you normalize bowel movements, lower cholesterol levels, and help you live longer. Yohimbine is another biohacking supplement that can help you lose fat as well by increasing your adrenaline. 

4. Gain Strength!

To gain muscle and strength, try taking protein supplements. Protein can help your muscles grow back stronger than before. If protein supplements aren’t your favorite, try including protein powder foods such as pancakes, or drinks such as milkshakes. Additionally, carbohydrate supplements can promote muscle gain and improve athletic performance.

5. Stay Immune

Staying immune to sickness is so important, especially now, so try taking Vitamin C supplements to support your immune systemVitamin C supplements work best as a prevention tool against sickness, so start taking this, like now! N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is another biohacking supplement that can relieve symptoms of respiratory conditions such as bronchitis and improve immunity. 

These are some areas that biohacking supplements can help you improve in, and transform your body and mind! If you don’t like taking supplements orally, you can try IV treatments, which deliver nutrients to your body quickly and conveniently. IV drips bypass your digestive tract and carry vitamins and minerals directly to your bloodstream, making biohacking supplements no hard pill to swallow…literally.

A To-Don’t List For Feeling Better About Yourself

We all have our bad days. Some more than others. While this is a normal thing and we inevitably go through some tough times that make us question our self-worth, we should not let the negativity take over our lives.

If we want to change the way we feel about ourselves and, ultimately, our situation, we need to not only do the right things but also stop doing the bad ones. Even if you keep doing the right things but you continue to live with the bad ones, you will just end up in a vicious cycle. It’s time to get rid of some of our negative reactions to life and its challenges.

10 Things to Stop Doing to Change the Way You Feel about Yourself for the Better

1. Don’t compare yourself with others.

So your colleagues’ quick-sale houses are moving faster than the ones on your listing. Your high school friends are doing extremely well in life while you’re still struggling to hold down a job. It might seem so easy to feel sorry for yourself and be envious of what they have.

Don’t. Stop comparing yourself to others. Your life and progress are your own journey. You go at your own pace. It is your race to finish, not theirs.

2. Don’t say “yes” if something doesn’t sit well with you.

One of the things that sometimes rob folks of joy is people-pleasing. This includes saying “yes” just to feel included and valued. But at what expense? It can lead to a life of compromise and instability. Put a stop to it. If you don’t agree with something, you can always say “no” and agree to disagree. Give it a try. It can be very liberating.

3. Don’t feel guilty about taking a break.

You’re not a machine that can keep going for hours on end. Even machines are put to rest regularly to delay wear-and-tear. As a human being, your energy reserves will run out — physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. You need to recognize when to stop and take a breather. It’s fine to take care of yourself, too.

4. Don’t be so hard on yourself.

Mistakes are natural for human beings. No one is perfect. We’re all flawed in our own unique way. If things don’t work out for you because of something you did (or did not do) or something you are (or are not), it’s okay. Pick up the pieces, learn the lesson, and move on as a better person.

5. Don’t convince yourself that you’re okay when you’re really not.

In some cases, we are our own worst enemy… well, at least our pride is. Pride makes us put on phony facades and keeps us from acknowledging our realities for fear of either pity or rejection.

It’s really okay to not be okay sometimes. You just need to embrace this fact and learn how to deal with it. The sooner you learn to accept things the way they are, the sooner you can get on the road to recovery.

6. Don’t let anything or anyone prevent you from making time to care for yourself.

Self-care is an important aspect of functioning well holistically and socially. They say that you can’t give what you don’t have. If you keep showing up for people but fail to do the same thing for yourself, how do you expect to give them your best? Take time to attend to your needs, too.

7. Don’t be afraid to speak up and be heard.

Most of the time, we don’t like speaking our minds because we feel like what we have to say doesn’t matter in the grander scheme of things. But know that your thoughts, opinions, and voice matters to those close to you. You’re seeing one side of the spectrum that could be their blind side. What you have to say can potentially be a life-changer.

8. Don’t break your promises.

Feeling good is sometimes based on the things you’ve accomplished. Making good on your word brings you opportunities to achieve and accomplish something significant to another person. It makes you more thoughtful about your decisions and actions which leads to greater self-confidence.

9. Don’t get insulted easily.

Sticks and stones may break your bones but words can make or break you. A lot of people have never recovered from a bad thing that was directed at them. In most cases, these insults have led to lifetime trauma.

You need to learn how to filter what people say about you. Stop taking every word hurled at you so seriously. Consider the source first. Sometimes, it has to do more with their issues and not you. Understand that hurt people hurt people. So instead of reacting to every negative word they say about you, choose to respond better and rise above it all.

10. Don’t stop living life.

Nobody promised that life is easy. You will face challenges that will require mountain-moving faith. But no matter how big those mountains are, just keep going. Don’t stop living for these circumstances are temporary.

Sometimes you don’t need to move the mountain at all. You just need to keep driving uphill until you overcome it. Once you’re past it, you’ll only see a small mountain in your rearview mirror. Don’t get easily overwhelmed.

As Dory from Little Nemo said, “Just keep swimming.”

We hope that you find these things helpful when you’re down. Life is too short and too beautiful to not fully enjoy. It’s time to get up and face life with a different attitude.

Manufacturing Quality Products with Consistency

Manufacturing your own products means that you’re completely in charge of quality. You’re not just choosing products that meet your standards but ensuring your products are manufactured to the standards that you set. Of course, every business might have different requirements for its products. But whether you offer a line of luxury products or a more affordable option, the quality of your products should be consistent. You don’t want one batch of products to be a certain quality, but the next batch to not meet your requirements. So how can you consistently manufacture quality products that are ready to be distributed?

Use the Right Processes and Techniques

Identifying the right processes and techniques for manufacturing is one of the most important steps to ensure quality. There are usually different options that might make use of different materials and produce varying results. Is plastic molding the best option to produce the parts that you need? Will you make use of flame spraying to apply metallic coatings to the parts that you produce? Finding the right manufacturing methods will help to ensure quality in all of your products. Be sure to explore the different processes that are available to you to help you manufacture quality products.

Find Reliable Manufacturers

If you aren’t manufacturing your products in-house, you need to find the right partners to help you. After researching some of your options, the first steps include getting a quote and having some samples created so that you can judge the quality of a manufacturer’s work. You should also look at reviews, ratings, and testimonials from current and past customers to see what others think of a manufacturer and the service that they provide. Assess some of the most important factors, such as lead times and how well the manufacturer communicates. The quality of your products or parts is important, but other things matter too.

Maintain Equipment and Training

For businesses that do carry out their own manufacturing, two of the things that can affect quality are the equipment that you use and employee training. You need quality equipment that is well-maintained, combined with workers who know what they’re doing and can produce consistent work. Getting a balance between productivity and quality of results isn’t always the easiest thing to do. Preventative maintenance will keep machines running to ensure consistent quality in the products that you manufacture. Ongoing training will help your employees to do their best work at all times.

Conduct Quality Control

It’s also essential to check the quality of the items that you manufacture. Whether you manufacture in-house or outsource to a partner, you should check the quality of your products regularly. If you don’t check for consistency in quality, you might not notice a decline until your customers start to complain. Scheduling regular quality control checks will help to ensure every batch has the same quality as the last.

Start manufacturing your products with consistent quality to protect your brand and ensure a good reputation.

Condo Living Pointers for Urban Families

For single people, condo living seems to be the perfect living arrangement. A compact space that is large enough for one person and facilities, such as pool and gym, that cater to your active lifestyle. However, condo living is not just for soloists and independent urbanites. It may also be ideal for small families.

Some may contest that condo living is impossible for families with little kids. But this should not be the case, as some benefits are actually directed to families, such as walkability to pre-schools and proximity to workplaces and establishments, such as Estancia Malls at Capital Commons.

If you are looking to raise your kids in a condo, there are a few things that you may want to remember:

Ditch the studio

You may think of getting a studio condo, but this is the first thing that you should not do. Studios are not suitable for families with kids, knowing that kids grow up, and soon enough the space will be too cramped for everyone. Go for large spaces that allow you to build different rooms. This may cost a bit more, but it will be worth it for everyone in the end. You do not want to be woken up unceremoniously by your kids’ playtime while you are taking a nap.

Build an extra room

Yes, your condo has a limited size, but that does not mean that you will not be able to accommodate your kids’ space requirements. If you are living in a 60-square meter condo, you can actually come up with at least three rooms. Make the third room as your kids’ nook where there they can enjoy their me-time. Fill it with books, toys, and games that will occupy them while you are minding your household tasks or work. What’s good about this is that the third room may double as your home office when your kid is not using it.

Encourage kids to make friends

Socialization may prove to be challenging for condo dwellers, but it is not impossible. Depending on where you live, the condo association may occasionally hold events for kids, such as parties and workshops. Take these opportunities to help your kids meet new people and make friends. Otherwise, let the condo playground and park be the venue where they can play with other kids. If your neighbor has a kid, you can invite them over to your unit for a movie marathon or some games.

Always plan for the weekend

One of the many benefits of living in the condo is your proximity to different establishments. Your unit may be close to malls, parks, and libraries, which all make ideal places for family bonding. So, make it a point every to go out with your family every weekend. That way, your kid will not be bored and will always have something to look forward to.

Condo living means comfort

Who says condo living is just for single people. With the right perspective and a few lifestyle adjustments, a condo unit may also make the perfect home for families with young ones. It is an opportunity worth taking.

Four Mistakes That Can Put You In Danger While Driving

Driving is something that can give you the freedom to go anywhere you want, whenever you want. However, as much as it can be a luxury, it also has it’s dangers. You want to make sure you’re doing everything you can to keep you and anyone else on the road safe at all times. Here are four mistakes that can put you in danger while driving.

Image Source

Getting Distracted

The last thing you want when on the road is getting distracted. That is a common mistake that can be made and one you definitely don’t want to be making. Distractions are all around us in life, and they’re certainly present when you’re in the car. To avoid having to deal with traffic attorneys, make sure you get rid of any distractions. It could be receiving notifications on your phone that distracts you from looking at the road in front of you or maybe it’s noisy passengers in the back that are making you spend too much of your time looking behind you. Distractions are dangerous, so where you can, try to reduce them where possible in order to ensure your focus is always on your driving and nothing else.

Not Using Your Turn Signals

Turn signals are there to indicate to others that you need to go into another lane or turn off at a point in the road. It can be dangerous not to use the indicators when driving because you can’t expect anyone driving behind you or to the side of you, to anticipate when you’re going to turn. If you find yourself forgetting to turn your indicators on and off, you might need to train yourself to start doing it more and being aware of when you’re doing it. It might be that you have things distracting you, and that also you might be rushing.

Driving Whilst Tired

Driving whilst tired is just like driving whilst intoxicated. You’re not fully focused on the road in front of you and what’s going on around you. It only takes a second or two of falling asleep to cause an accident, and in some cases, it can be fatal for you or the person you’ve driven into. Make sure that you’re fully awake before driving and that if you feel tired, pull over to somewhere safe and take a break. It’s not worth shaving time off your arrival to your destination if you’re half awake and needing a rest.

Taking Your Hands Off The Wheel

Taking your hands off the wheel is something you certainly don’t want to do. It’s important that you’re in control of the vehicle and taking your hands off the wheel at any point can result in you losing control of the car. Even with one hand off the wheel, you’re risking your reaction time. Make sure that you’ve always got both hands on the wheel and practice keeping them on if you’re someone who has a habit of taking them off.

No one wants to put themselves in danger, so use these tips to protect yourself while driving.
