__Daily Challenge - 24.03.20__

__ 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

**Maths Challenge: 14.05.20**

Look at the two statements below (PDF also available). Can you use your reasoning skills to say whether you agree or disagree with Thinking Tom. How can you prove what you think? Show your thinking/working out.

**Maths Challenge: 12.05.20**

Now try with four digits...

**Maths Challenge: 11.05.20**

Use your place value knowledge to work out the maths riddles below. I'll start you off with just 3 digit numbers. Challenge a member of your family; who can get the correct answer first! Remember, always check your answers!

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.

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.

Today, something different! You are going to use your addition and subtraction skills to play a game. You could try this with an adult at home or a sibling (brother or sister).

Supporting documents and powerpoint can be found below.

Have ago at these problems. If you finish these and if you finish see the link below for some BBC Bitesize maths challenges. These should definitely make your brain work! Good luck and try your best.

As always, the above problems can be found as a PDF format below (for printing).

__Answers will be added later in the week! See PDF file below...__

__Maths Challenge-23rd April __

Multiplication and division problem solving. Remember to use R U C S A C ( read, understand, choose, solve, answer and check) when working the following problems out. The four pages have been saved onto one PDF document (below).

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: 20.04.20__

__Ring a ring of numbers__ **Below are PDF files, including a recording sheet for your solutions!**

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

- 93
- 119
- 178
- 299
- 546
- 888
- 994
- 1547
- 2690
- 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**

Then, have a go at the worksheets (a PDF copy can be found below for you to print).

__Maths Challenge 14.04.20__

__ Hint:__ Don't forget your place value columns.

You may want to draw a PV chart.

__Maths Challenge: 09.04.20__

__Maths Challenge: 08.04.20__

__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!

The answers as promised....

Today's Easter Tasks are Bake it and Play it! See the link below...

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/easter-fun/

** Maths Challenge- 06.04.20**

Remember, 3 groups of __different__ sizes!! Every possibility needs to total 30 children.

**Hints and tips**

** Maths Challenge 01.04.20**

__Read all of the clues...__

Which clue will help you first?

If the number you are rounding ends in 5 or above, round the number up.

If the numbers you are rounding end in 4 or below, round the number down.

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.

__Can you solve these word problems?__

Can you answer them in context if necessary?

Can you use your reasoning skills to say whether you agree or disagree with Thinking Tom?

How can you ** prove** what you think?
