    what we are doing

    Getting to know GST - this class is aimed at Chalkle teachers, but the maths can be applied to any GST situation.

    This class is maths based, with lots of working examples to help you feel more comfortable around what calculations you need to make and why, when dealing with GST.

    No maths ability required - just understand how to push the buttons of your calculator / calculator function of your computer or phone.

    what you will learn

    How do I add GST to advertised price?

    How do I know what the GST component is in a GST inclusive price?

    How do I know how much I get to keep in a GST inclusive price?

    How do I calculate percentage increases?

    type of class tips & tricks

    skill required beginner

    your chalkler will be

    Elf Eldridge is:

    COOChiasma WGTN
    2013 President, WGTN Branch of the Royal Society
    Physics PhD Student MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology

    He is also a poor maths student. However that means that the bits that he does understand, he  understands and can explain really simply so that anyone [really, anyone!] can understand it.

    Also, unlike your high school maths teacher he's interested in finding the quick ways that make maths work for individuals rather than focussing relentlessly on the underlying concepts.

    Learn what you need when you need it as he says!

    what to bring

    a calculator of some description - on your phone or computer is fine, or an actual calculator if you prefer.

    cost Koha / donation

    Sorry I should have stated when I joined that as long as it doesn't have to do with maths then I'm in :P

      Nicola's right - the aim of this is to show you how to do what you want to do, not to focus on the underlying math (although i'll happily talk about that too - if it comes up)
