Maths Challenge 23.05.20

 

Hint: You will have to work backwards (using the inverse) to find the number at the start of the problem.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maths Challenge: 19.05.20

 

Remember to check your calculations using the inverse operation!

 

Maths Challenge: 18.05.20

 

Look at the problem below.  You need to make sure each possibility totals £3.80.

One example answer would be:

7 gel pens (7 x 50p = £3.50) and 1 pencil (30p)

£3.50 + 30p = £3.80

Now you give it a go! Good luck yes

Maths Challenge 07.05.20

 

Using the fruit prices from yesterday, answer the remaining four questions.

 

Remember to use the strategies below. Read the question carefully and consider what the question wants you to find out. How are you going to solve the problems? Is there anything that you learned from yesterday (if you made mistakes) that can help you today?

 

Good luck! As always, please find printable versions below. The prices of the fruit can be found on the document containing questions 1-4.

 

 

Maths Challenge 06.05.20

 

Use the information below (the cost of the fruit) to calculate the answers to the money problems.

 

Remember: Read the question carefully. You may need to make jottings and calculate the answer using a number of steps. 

 

Use RUCSAC to help you.

R - Read the problem.

U - Understand the problem.

C - Choose the operation(s) you will use.

S - Solve the problem.

A - Get your answer. Does it answer the question originally asked? Can you write your answer as a sentence?

C - Check your answer to ensure that it makes sense. You may want to use the inverse (opposite operation to check). Use your answer and work backwards to see if you get back to where you started.

Multiplication and Division Problems 23rd April

Maths Challenge - 21.04.20 

 

Today, there are a range of maths based puzzles for you to complete. Below, you will find printable versions of two wordsearches and three different sudoku puzzles all at different levels (including a 9x9 grid for those who want an extra challenge). With the sudoku puzzles, you can copy the grids out to complete (and the same for the wordsearches if you want). This will also help with your use of a ruler and your measuring skills. I would measure 1cm boxes for each number or letter. You could make the grids larger by measuring 2cm squares.

For the Sudoku, you will find that the answers will be added next week.

Maths Challenge 17.04.20

 

Maths Challenge 16.04.20

 

Today's challenge is all about Roman numerals. Can you remember all the rules?

Warm up: Write a list of roman numerals 1-20.

 

Remember:

1) If the smaller multiple is written before the larger one, you subtract.

If the smaller multiple is written after the larger multiple, you add.

 

E.g

IV = 4 because the one is written before the 5, so 5-1 = 4

VI = 6 because the one is written after the 6, so 5 + 1 = 6

IX = 9 = 10-1

XI = 11 = 10 +1

 

2) As the numbers become larger, you have to partition the numbers into their columns to work out the answer.

 

Remember:

I = 1

V = 5

X = 10

L = 50

C = 100

D = 500

M = 1000

 

              

Challenge – Convert the below numbers to Roman numerals

  1. 93
  2. 119
  3. 178
  4. 299
  5. 546
  6. 888
  7. 994
  8. 1547
  9. 2690
  10.  Today’s date – 16/04/2020

 

 

Maths Challenge 15.04.20

 

Moving on from yesterday, the challenge is to make one whole using decimals. 

Remember: decimals (decimal fractions) split the whole number into equal parts. So after the decimal point, the whole number is firstly split into tenths and then hundredths. 

 

E.g - 0.3 + 0.7 = 1         This is the same as 3/10 + 7/10 = 10/10 = 1

 

E.g - 0.47 + 0.53 = 1     This is the same as 47/100 + 53/100 = 100/00 = 1

Helpful Hints:

To work out the numbers for the children in green, try starting with the first row.  What do you notice about the green numbers?

Can you make the green numbers from any of the other numbers?

Does the rule you found work for the second row of numbers?  And the third?

 

I will post the answers Friday evening! smiley

The challenge today is something slightly different. Below, please see the Sudoku puzzles. For the smaller grids (4x4), each row, column and smaller square need to contain the numbers 1-4. For the larger grids (6 x 6), each row, column and smaller square need to contain the numbers 1-6. Each number can only be used once in each orientation and direction. Have a go and Miss Lindop will post the answers at the end of the week.
