Finding a rule using two steps!

Today in Maths we have been finding a rule using two steps. We know how two step function machine works and can identify the input/ output in different function machines. We know how to write functions as algebraic expressions. Do you know what algebraic expressions are?


We would like to say well done to Bastian Hernas for earning his bronze certificate. Well done for completing your Mathletics.

Finding the area of triangles!

This morning we have been finding out the areas of triangles. We know the area inside a shape is the perimeter. We know the formula to find out the area of triangles as well as using the correct units. Do you know the formula for a triangle and the correct units?

Long multiplication!

This morning we have been looking at long multiplication. We multiplied 4 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers. Then we moved on to multiplying 4 digits by 2 digit numbers. Do you know what 3666 x 12 is?

Practicing our arithmetic skills!

This morning we have been given a test paper on arithmetic and we have been answering questions independently. Then we have used explain everything to show how we got the correct answer. Do you know what 30 percent of 24000 is?

Interpreting pie charts!

This  morning we have been given a challenge to look and interpret pie charts. Do you know the answers to the question below?

Plotting points and drawing polygons!

This afternoon we have accurate drawn polygons plotting coordinates. We know when plotting the x coordinate goes first and then its the y axis. Can you plot coordinates given to you?

Recognising equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages!

This  morning in maths we have been identifying equivalence between fractions and decimals. We known use multiplication to identify a percentage and we can multiply decimal values to identify a percentage. Can you recognise equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages?

Order of operations!

Today we have been looking at order of operations. We have learnt we have to follow the correct order or we know we will not get the correct. We know we have to follow BODMAS. Do you know what BODMAS is?

Using negative numbers!

This morning we have been looking at word problems. We have been able to write the method to calculate differences. We used a number line to calculate differences and we were able to count through 0. Do you know how to use a number line to calculate differences?
