This half term we are going to be focusing on fractions and problem solving / reasoning questions.
Remember to keep using mymaths at home. There are lots of activities on there and lots of homework help.
We are going to be:
-Using common factors to simplify fractions; use common multiples to express fractions in the same denomination.
-Comparing and ordering fractions, including fractions >1
-Add and subtract fractions with different denominations and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions.
-Multiply simple pairs of proper fractions, writing the answer in its simplest form [for example
14 x 12=18]
Problem Solving Wednesday
We were placed in pairs with a partner we don't usually work with. We then looked at the problem and looked for different ways to solve it. There was lots of great discussion between partners and across the tables. We really enjoyed this lesson and look forwards to exploring other problems.
