This lesson is to be completed in your Home Learning Maths Book (a grid book).
LG: I can solve number problems involving addition strategies and record my thinking.
For maths sessions this week we are going to focus on problem solving. When solving maths problems, it is important to make sure that you always follow the first three rules of maths… RECORD, RECORD, RECORD!
Practise rolling the dice 6 times and put the rolls into an order that best matches with the strategies that you would use to ADD up the numbers. e.g. Doubles/ Facts to ten/ Near doubles/Known Facts.
If you don’t have your own dice at home or would like to attempt using a dice with more sides, follow this link to use an online dice roller https://www.google.com/search?q=dice+roller
If you would like a further challenge, try to do the same activity using a dice with more sides.
Once you have solved the problem in your Home Learning Maths Book, share your thinking with someone at home and discuss other possible ways to solve the problem.
