# Friday 29/10/21 – Maths

Learning Goal: I can identify and model common fractions.

First, look at the pictures below are they an equal representation of a fraction? Justify your thinking.

Next, choose 1 shape below and demonstrate your understanding of 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8.

Example:

Then, choose 1 other shape and demonstrate your understanding of 1/3, 1/6 and 1/9.

Finally, give me a real-world example of when you would use these fractions.

Example: To share out equal parts of a birthday cake.

Challenge: See if you can use all the shapes to demonstrate your understanding of common fractions.

# Thursday 28/10/21 – Maths

Today you will be doing math’s in your small group lessons with your teacher.  Please bring your math’s book, a pencil, a ruler and an eraser.

# Monday 25/10/21 – Maths

Learning goal: I can use strategies from the mathematician’s toolbox to solve problems

Today you will be solving a real-world based story problem. When we solve worded problems, we might need to think of different types of strategies and use different maths skills. Here is today’s problem:

Next, Use these strategies, or one of your own choice, to solve the problem. Remember to think about these strategies from the video:

Then, Make sure you have worked through all of the parts of the problem, and check that your work is shown neatly in your book.

Finally, You might like to do the fun optional extra activity of making your own ice-cream shop menu.

If you are having trouble with any of the parts of the problem, remember to go back to the video to help you.

Learning goal: I can use strategies from the mathematician’s toolbox to solve problems

Today you will be solving a real-world based story problem. When we solve worded problems, we might need to think of different types of strategies and use different maths skills. Here is today’s problem:

First… read through today’s problem below and think about what you know or what you could do to solve it:

Farmer Fionas Fence maths problem Part 1

Do you have a strategy in mind? If you do, you might like to have a think about how you would solve it. If not, you can go straight to the video below.

Next… watch the video to see an example of a similar problem, and learn about a strategy that could help you with this problem.

Then… use this strategy, or one of your own choice, to solve the problem. Make sure you have checked your work carefully.

Finally: Once you have worked through the first part of the problem, you can use your number skills to solve the questions in the second part:

Farmer Fionas Fence maths problem Part 2

Challenge:  Is there away to know how many fence posts you would need without drawing the diagram? Could you come up with a rule that would explain how to work this out for a rectangle of any size?

Don’t forget to post a photo of your work in OneNote

# Thursday 21/10/21 – Maths

Learning Goal: I can collect, represent, and interpret data.

First: Watch the video/PowerPoint below.

Next, think of a category that you could collect data on. For example:

• How many basketball hoops can each member of the family shoot in a minute?
• How many movies did each of my friends watch in the holidays?
• How many types of fruit are there in your kitchen.

Then, collect the data and write down the results. You can do a tally, or write the number down.

Finally, make a graph to represent your data. Include all of the features you need for other people to read your graph.

Write down what this graph shows you.

Don’t forget to check your graph has an X and Y axis, labels and a title.

Challenge: Can you create a different type of graph for this information.

Work sample to upload to OneNote:  Your graph and what you noticed it showed you.

# Tuesday 19/10/21 – Maths

Learning Goal: I can collect, represent, and interpret data.

First, watch the video below

Next,

• Create a table, to keep a tally of 5 different types of exercises
• Set a timer for 30 seconds. Start doing star jumps, counting how many you do in the 30 seconds. Write down a tally of how many you did into your table.
• Set a timer for 30 seconds. Start hopping on one leg, counting how many you do in the 30 seconds. Write down a tally of how many you did into your table.
• Set a timer for 30 seconds. Start doing squats, counting how many you do in the 30 seconds. Write down a tally of how many you did into your table into your table.
• Set a timer for 30 seconds. Start doing rocket jumps up and down, counting how many you do in the 30 seconds. Write down a tally of how many you did into your table.
• Set a timer for 30 seconds. Start doing push-ups, counting how many you do in the 30 seconds. Write down a tally of how many you did into your table.

EXAMPLE

Then, draw a graph to represent your data.                                                       Include all of the features you need for other people to read your graph:

• X and Y axis
• Title
• Label

Example

Finally, write down what your graph shows you.  What did you notice ?

Don’t forget to check you have labelled your graph.

Challenge:  Could you draw a different type of graph to represent your results.

Work sample to upload to OneNote:  your tally, graph, and what you noticed.

# Monday 18/04/21 – Maths

Learning Goal: I can collect, represent, and interpret data.

First watch the video below to see the instructions for today’s lesson.

You will need:

• A bucket, tub or box.
• A ball, or a rolled-up pair of socks.
• Your math’s book
• A pencil

Next

• Stand next to your bucket and take 4 large steps back.
• Mark where you are standing with an object.
• Have 10 attempts to throw your ball or socks into the bucket.
• Tally how many went in.

Then, repeat these instructions

• 5 steps back from your bucket
• 6 steps back from your bucket
• 7 steps back from your bucket
• 8 steps back from your bucket

Don’t forget to tally correctly.

Challenge: ask a family member to have a go and tally their results too.

Work sample to upload to OneNote:  your tally and what you noticed.

# Friday 15/10/21 – Maths

Learning goal: I can work out all the possible options to solve a problem

Today you will be solving a real-world based story problem. This type of problem will need you to find every possible solution. When we solve worded problems, we might need to think of different types of strategies and use different maths skills. Here is today’s problem:

First… read through today’s problem below and think about what you know or what you could do to solve it:

Do you have a strategy in mind? If you do, you might like to have a think about how you would solve it and make an estimate. If not, you can go straight to the video below.

Next… watch the video to see an example of a similar problem, and learn about a strategy that could help you with this problem.

Then… use this strategy, or one of your own choice, to solve the problem. Make sure you have found every possible solution.

If you think this problem is very easy for you, you might like to choose one of these more difficult versions:

harder version – Cheeseburger Choices Challenge harder version

Challenge: You might be able to buy a similar burger from a burger shop. Look at the problem and questions below to work out the burger costs.

Challenge – cheeseburger costs

# Thursday 14/10/21 – Math’s

Learning Goal: I can illustrate what possible chances looks like.

First, you will need:

• your math’s book
• colouring pencils

Next, sometimes events have more chance of occurring than others.

Looking at these spinners:

• There would be a 50% chance of spinning blue.
• There would an unlikely chance of spinning green.

Then, draw and colour in the spinners to show each possible outcome.
