This week we will be continuing with our work on angles and then moving on to problem solving. 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.
Friday means challenge day! Questions 1 - 6 are suitable for you year 6s. Question 7 onwards are aimed at High School children but you can attempt these too if you want an extra challenge! Answers will be online this afternoon
Challenge 1 - 8 strawberries and any shape made up of two of that triangle (a square, rhombus, triangle etc)
Challenge 2 - 47p
Challenge 3 - 11 cards
Challenge 4 - 2 jugs and 6 buckets or 6 jugs and 3 buckets
Challenge 5 - 120 degress
Challenge 6 - Circle = 32, Triangle = 38 and Pentagon = 25
Challenge 7 - 5, 10, 5 (multiple other answers too)
Challenge 8 - £14.20
Challenge 9 = 51 cm squared
Challenge 10 - 4 minutes 7.5 seconds
We are continuing with problem solving today. Remember to try your best, show your working and if you complete the questions, think about how you could show your working in a different way (such as pictorial) and write a sentence to explain your answer/prove how you know you are correct.
Thursday Creative Maths Challenge
Research the populations of 10 countries of your choice.
Order the populations from largest to smallest.
Find the difference between the populations.
Round the populations to the nearest 100 000, 1 000 000 and 10 000 000.
Construct a table to record your results.
Today and tomorrow we are going to be doing some problem solving. You can use any method you like to help you work out your answer - try drawing diagrams, bar models to assist you! Remember to apply knowledge you already have, such as:
0.7 = seven tenths = 7/10 = which is the same as 70/100 = 70%
Wednesday Creative Maths Challenge
Download Factors and Multiples puzzle from nRich https://nrich.maths.org/factorpuzzle
Can you solve the problem?
Today we are looking at angles in regular polygons. This lesson will tie together the learning from the last couple of weeks. Watch the video and follow the steps on your worksheet.
Tuesday Creative Maths Challenge
Draw a rectangle and divide it into quarters diagonally.
Use scissors and cut your shape into four triangles.
Rearrange the triangles to make other shapes - how many different shapes can you make?
Can you classify/sort them?
Can you describe them?
Are they regular or irregular shapes?
Today we are calculating angles in quadrilaterals (four sided shapes). Remember that the angles in a quadrilateral or around a point equal 360 degrees.
Monday Creative Maths Challenge
Download Nine pin Triangles from nRich https://nrich.maths.org/2852
Create as many differet triangles as you can on the nine pins.
Can you classify them?
Can you identify the angles in the triangles? Acute, obtuse or reflex?
If you have a protractor, can you measure them?
