Mathematics Week Beginning 6th July 2020

 

We are nearly there. Keep going with your 15 minutes a day TTRockstars, Numbots or Topmarks. Not many people have been on these and honestly, it will make you better at Maths so really try to spend just 15 minutes a day on these sites.

For those who wish to become amazing at Maths – have a go at watching Gareth Metcalfe’s home learning clips and follow up with his extension activities.

Here is a list of the themes covered and the extension tasks are underneath in document form for you to download. No need to print out, just show your working out in your Maths book.

look at different word questions involving money, then work up to a 'how many ways?' question involving calculating change.

Explore a problem-solving task looking at the different ways that a calculation can be done using different coins.

 

Wednesday 1st July: Equal, More, Less
