## Maths starter

Work on the answers to the questions below in your head and then write the answers on a sheet of paper. Can you answer these quicker than yesterday?

1) 6754-232

2) 68+32

3) 97-32

4)65+230

5) 3256-3210

6) 32+78

## Begum's Beasts and Limit Breakers.

Today we are going to have a go at order decimal numbers from smallest to largest.

Have a look at the examples below:

0.4 is bigger the 0.2.

0.4 is bigger than 0.32. This is because 0.4 is actually 0.40 which means it is bigger than 0.32.

Look at how the numbers below are mixed and then look at how they have been ordered from smallest to largest.

0.45 0.54 0.5 0.7 0.23 0.4

Smallest 0.23, 0.4, 0.45, 0.5, 0.54, 0.7

Have a go at ordering the decimal numbers below.

1)0.2, 0.18, 0.3, 0.23, 0.07, 0.6

2) 0.7, 0.98, 0.21, 0.1, 0.08

3) 0.89, 0.6, 0.8, 0.5, 0.76

4) 0.54, 0.98, 0.32, 0.3, 0.5

5) 0.12, 0.78, 0.4, 0.7

## Begum's Beasts extension and Pi-Thons

Yesterday you focused on finding fractions of amounts where the numerator is 1. for example:

1/4 of 12= 3

Today will be more complicated as the numerator will be more than 1. For example:

3/4 of 12= 9

We work this out by finding out how many 4's there are in 12. We then multiply this answer by 3 as there are 3/4's.

1. 2/5 of 55.
2. 3/5 of 55.
3. 2/6 of 18.
4. 5/6 of 18.
5. 4/8 of 24.
6. 3/9 of 27.
7. 4/6 of 30.
8. 3/4 of 44.
9. 2/3 of 33.
10. 4/5 of 60.

## Fire Dragons and Number Ninjas

Amazing work yesterday. We were worried you'd find this work a little tricky but you proved us wrong. Ardderchog. Today we look into fractions of amounts in more detail and with even trickier questions. Take your time on these as they will have multiple steps!

## Top Banaynays and Chunky Monkeys

Well done everyone on the terrific work on teams yesterday. Today we look further into the relationship between fractions and decimals. Please join your class teams meeting for more information. For Top Banaynays, please join our teams call at 10am for this!

Write this as a decimal.
