This week's focus is on word problems. In term one, we practised using RUCSAC when answering word problems.
Today's word problems are all time questions. Download the task below, do your working out and then don't forget to do the inverse calculation to check your answer.
Today we are going to look once again at decimals and we are focussing on the relationship between tenths and hundredths.
We are thinking about real life examples of when we would use hundredths and focussing on length (metres) and money (pounds).
In money, a 1p coin is one hundredth of £1 because it takes 100 1ps to make £1.
A 10p coin is one tenth of £1 because it takes 10 10ps to make £1.
One tenth of £1 (10p) is equivalent to ten hundredths of £1 (10 X 1p).
Imagine you have 35p.
How else can we write 35p? Well, we could also write £0.35. Think about this 0.35.
I can say that 35 hundredths is equal to 3 tenths and 5 hundredths.
Watch today's video where Mrs Bell will go through more examples of tenths and hundredths. Then download one of the activities below to practise using tenths and hundredths.
Once you've finished, log in to Education City https://go.educationcity.com/ and have a go at the Over and Under activity. As part of this activity, you will be using the < and > symbols. Remember,
In today's task, we are thinking about reflections and symmetry. Can you explain the mistakes in the pictures below? What went wrong?
