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.

Wednesday 29/04/20

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
