Maths

Maths is going to be a bit different over the next 2 weeks.  Each week you will have 2 mystery games to solve.  In the game something untoward has happened and there are a list of suspects. It is your job to discover which suspect is guilty of the ‘crime’.  There are 5 clues to solve in each game, each clue is a different mathematical activity. There are therefore 10 activities to complete over the week, this works out as 2 per day but it’s up to you if you want to spread them out or do a whole game at once then have some days off from doing maths.

 

You may need to do some research or ask an adult for some help on some of the questions Eg Roman numerals or time (as we haven’t done much on time this year)

 

This weeks games are:

Monkey Mystery at Animal Antics Zoo

Activity 1: True or false maths questions

Activity 2: Dividing by 10 and 100

Activity 3: Coordinates

Activity 4: Converting from a 12-hour clock to a 24-hour clock

Activity 5: Column addition, subtraction and multiplication (and some division thrown in)

 

The Mystery of the Melted Ice Cream at Merryvale Fair

Activity 1: True or false maths questions

Activity 2: Number lines – including negative numbers

Activity 3: Calculating change (money)

Activity 4: Division

Activity 5: Equivalent fractions

Week Beginning: 29th June 2020

Have a go at the online interactive game.

 

There are 3 sections to the sheet.  The first section looks at reading coordinates, the second section looks at plotting points  - you need to do both of these sections.

 

The third section is more of a challenge – have a go at this if you want but don’t worry if you find it tricky

This work can be completed on the computer by writing in the box for the first section and copying and pasting the cross for the second and third sections.

 

Alternatively, it can be printed.

Tuesday

To draw reflections of a shape

Take part in the SumDog competition- it ends tomorrow!

When reflecting a shape you need to look carefully at the size of the shape and also the exact positioning of it.  For example if a shape is 2 squares away from the line of symmetry on one side, it should be 2 squares away from the line of symmetry on the opposite side (see the example on the sheet)

You can print the sheet and draw the shapes on.

 

It is possible to complete the work on the sheet on a computer/iPad etc by using the borders controls or by drawing lines.  Just let me know if you need help with this.

Wednesday

To draw reflections of a pattern

Take part in the SumDog competition- it ends TODAY!

As with yesterdays work, you need to look carefully at the exact place of each coloured cell (you will need to count them).  Remember that it is a reflection not copying one side to the other.

You can print the sheet and colour the pattern on it.

 

It is possible to complete the work on the sheet on a computer/iPad etc by using the fill function which comes up as a paint can on the toolbar at the top or when you right click on a cell.  Just let me know if you need help with this.

 

*Remember to use a ruler to draw lines

Thursday

To draw reflections in 2 lines of symmetry

Practise 6 and 8 times tables. Remember 6s are double 3s and 8s are double 4s

We have looked at reflecting shapes and patterns in one line of symmetry but now we are going to try it with 2 lines of symmetry.

 

You can print the sheet and complete the work on paper

 

It is possible to complete the work on the sheet on a computer/iPad etc by using the fill (which comes up as a paint can on the toolbar at the top or when you right click on a cell ) and borders functions.  Just let me know if you need help with this.

Friday

To create a symmetrical  model or piece of artwork

Missing numbers:

 

___ x 6 = 24

 

125 + ___ = 247

 

300 - ___ = 182

 

___ + 182 = 395

 

4 x ___ = 32

Use things that you have at home (art materials, lego even plates or tins from the kitchen cupboard!) to create a symmetrical model or piece of art.  Be as creative as you like but it must be symmetrical!

 

I have put a video of the making of my own example below! 

In the final picture I have taken 1 piece away so it is not symmetrical.  Can you spot it?

Take a photo of your masterpiece and send it to me!

FRIDAY - My Lego masterpiece being made

To understand and identify lines of symmetry

Have a go at the Sudoku puzzle below. Ask a parent or younger sibling to explain how to do them if you’re not sure.

Look at the PDF document of a page taken from the Abacus Textbook.  Some lines of symmetry are correct, others are not

Either on a Word document or on a page in your homework book write the question number and tell me which lines correctly show a line of symmetry and which do not (all lines have a letter) 

Eg

  1. a, b and c are correct.  d,e and f are incorrect (this is not the actual answer!)

*Also complete the ‘Think’ task at the bottom

Friday

To draw lines of symmetry

Extra SumDog time!

Look at the shapes on the sheet and draw in the correct lines of symmetry.  Check carefully that you have found them all!
