This week we will be returning to fractions. Watch the video first (by using the link below and finding the correct video), after this complete the worksheet and check your answers once you have finished.
There are fluency questions and 'creative challenges' to complete if you would like some extra maths to do. Remember to only do as much as you can - these activities aren't compulsory.
A message from White Rose Maths about this week’s Friday Maths Challenge:
As it's a bank holiday on Friday, we've got a special challenge in store for you!
We've teamed up with Classroom Kitchen to bring you 3 maths-themed recipes!
View a copy of the ingredients lists below so you can get prepared.
More information will be revealed on Friday.
Please don’t panic about getting hold of ingredients if you are unable to do so. I will ensure that there is alternative learning uploaded ‘just in case’.
Keep safe everyone,
Today is the Maths Cooking Challenge! If you are joining in with this challenge, watch the video of Mr D from Classroom Kitchen https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ Follow the recipe to create your own a Clue-Dough Carrot Cake. If you are not joining in with this challenge, there is some problem solving maths for you to complete. See the documents below.
Once you have baked your cake and allowed it to cool, you can create one of two puzzles to challenge your family (or yourself!) to complete.
- The first puzzle you could make is a jigsaw: using icing sugar to create a pattern on the top of your cake, then mix up the pattern and challenge someone to put it back together again.
- The second puzzle is a Tangram Puzzle. These puzzles are typically made up of seven shapes which you need to mix up and then rearrange into a square again. You could also create a tangram using paper if you would like to challenge somebody else once you have eaten your cake! The completed tangram should look like the image below:
Have fun and send us any photos of what you get up to!
Problem Solving Challenges
Today we are looking at adding and subtracting fractions as mixed numbers.
This image shows two bars which are split into fifths. There is one whole bar and one bar of four fifths. This is shown as: 1 4/5 (mixed number) which is the same as 9/5 (improper fraction).
