Maths Summer 2 Week 2 08.06.20 –Decimals.
This week we will be focusing on decimals (remember we are revising the topic so you should be able to complete the assignments using your learning from the year so far). Try to show your working out where possible. Please read the work carefully as it clearly states which work you do need to submit.
Each day you will have some arithmetic questions to answer in order to keep your fluency skills ticking over. You will find the answers at the end of the work…no cheating!
This week, you can refer to the BBC Bitesize daily lessons and White Rose home learning where you will find further explanations and examples of working with decimals. The link to the website can be found on the PowerPoint. Other useful websites have also been included.
Lesson 1 – To multiply and divide decimals by 10, 100 and 1000
Use the PowerPoint to guide you through the steps of the methods used to multiply and divide decimals. Examples have been included for you to practise. Take your time to work through the examples then complete the tasks. Your tasks include some calculations to solve followed by mastery questions.
Lesson 2 – To multiply decimals by integers
Work through the PowerPoint to revise the method for multiplying decimals by integers (whole numbers). You will be using formal written methods for some of these calculations as well as your known multiplication facts. Complete the calculations showing your working out clearly. To challenge yourself, complete the mastery tasks.
Lesson 3 – To divide decimals by integers
As with the previous lessons, use the PowerPoint to work through dividing decimals by integers. There is a short video clip to help explain how to do this as well as examples. When ready, complete the tasks, showing your working out. There are also optional mastery questions.
Lesson 4 – Challenge questions
This week, there is a selection of challenge questions on a PowerPoint. They are easier to begin with and become more challenging as you work through. They are questions from different maths topics and are good to complete as you will be referring back to your mathematical knowledge. There are 7 questions to complete and answers can be found on the last slide. You do not need to submit answers for these.
In addition to this, you can still log onto TTRS and MyMaths for additional work.
