Distance Speed Time - Two Part Journeys

Distance Speed Time - Two Part Journeys

Warm Up If a single journey is split into two parts then we have distances, speeds and times associated with each part of the journey but also for the journey as a whole. The early problems involve all 9 measures (3 distances, 3 speeds and 3 times) but only 4 are given. Students must fill in the remaining 5. Main Investigation The later questions require students to think about the connection between all 9 measures in more generality. Other details Read the file labelled Read Me first!

An Inquiry Based Maths Project with Measure, Fractions & Data Analysis

An Inquiry Based Maths Project with Measure, Fractions & Data Analysis

Help the chickens escape a life of drudgery with this week long inquiry based math project focusing on animal rights. It offers collaborative learning and hands on inquiry requiring the children to solve problems, think critically and apply their knowledge of measure, area, data analysis, fractions, ratio tables and word problems as they help: Chickens to escape a factory farm with the help of the fastest farm animals Plan and design a chicken farm, chicken coop and run using measure and fractions Research, compare and contrast data of wingspans, analyse data and record their data Build model wings based on measure and research Calculate the amount of food necessary for their chicken farm And much more! Informational text is included that the children will have to identify and use in order to solve the problems. Research will be necessary as the children have to know the various wingspans of certain birds and compare them with chickens. UK & USA spelling included. It culminates in a class presentation of the facts found ,reasoning as to their plan and design of their team’s escape and new chicken coop and run. Comparing and contrasting each group’s work, helps with critical thinking too and communication skills. Wholly differentiated, ( Task B cards are less challenging) you can use it as a summative assessment tool of the skills and standards included. It can be created as a booklet or in a binder, with a front cover included, being used as a goal setting pre assessment for the children. Mix and match the pages to suit your students’ needs. I prefer to have the children work on the design pages individually before they compare their designs within a small group and work together to collaboratively create their group plan of the chicken coop & run and the great escape! This inquiry based math packet is easy to print and go, perfect for an IB PYP Sharing the Planet theme and thoroughly encourages student agency throughout. I designed it for my IB PYP 4th grade class. It can be used 3rd – 5th grade too. You will find the following skills and standards ideally suited for the IB PYP Phases 3 & 4 and CCSS Math for 4th and 5th grade: Number sense and base ten operations Fractions: adding Measure: using measuring tools , area & perimeter Geometry: identifying polygons and angles Data analysis Make math fun, engaging and authentic!

Measurement  Problem Solving KS2 Romans

Measurement Problem Solving KS2 Romans

This activity combined our History topic of Romans, with our Maths focus of measurement, plus a little bit of shapes and fractions thrown as an assessment of the previous units taught. Students receive a letter from Emperor Hadrian, with the command to rebuild sections of Hadrian`s Wall. They then worked in differientiated groups for calculate the correct measurements for the wall. Once the correct measurements had been calculated they then used their knowledge of 3-D shapes to build the wall. I have included the activity and instructions in pdf and word format for editing. My class loved it, but I have to be honest - it took them all morning! Learning Objectives covered: Geometry: Property of Shapes: • Draw 2-D shapes and make 3-D shapes using modelling materials. Measurement: • Measure, compare, and add lengths (m/cm/mm) • Continue to measure using the appropriate tools and units, progressing to using a wider range of measures, including comparing and using mixed units and simple equivalents of mixed units (for example, 5m = 500cm). Fractions: • Recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects. • Recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10

recipe shopping maths investigation

recipe shopping maths investigation

a maths investigation lesson written to consolidate Y5 children’s learning of converting weights and measures and dealing with money. With a spaghetti bolognaise recipe, children calculate the ingredients needed for 4, 8 or 10 guests. They then use screenprints from the Tesco website to ‘shop’, finding the best value option for each ingredient. Excellent paired activity for year 5 or year 6 children to help them understand the importance of these skills and apply them in a real-life context.

History of the metric system

History of the metric system

A presentation to get pupils thinking a about the origins of the metric system. There’s quite a lot of information in there, but I think its interesting so I’m going to make my pupils look at it! There are no worksheets or ‘usual’ metric questions, but I’ve put some follow up questions and possible activities in the comments boxes on each slide. Please let me know if you have any better ideas as mine are a bit lame. Most of the information is taken from Wikipedia so please let me know if you see any innacuracies!

Year 3- 6 weeks of Maths and English

Don’t spend more time then you have to working at home! I have planned English and Maths Year 3 homework, for 6 weeks. English homework has exciting tasks for pupils to describe and use similes, whilst maths is a combination of volume, mass, litres, numbers and measurement. It won’t take too long for the children at home and it will reinforce learning.
