# Week 8: Sharing maths with others

## Introduction

In this final week of the course you’ll complete your study of negative numbers by looking at multiplication and division, and using them effectively. You’ll finish the week by thinking about how to write and communicate maths clearly and correctly. This last section is important if you need to share your maths with other people. This could be with a work colleague, a friend (if you are working out an everyday problem) or – if you decide to undertake formally assessed study – a tutor.

In the following video Maria introduces Week 8, the final week of the course, and the final badge quiz:
