How many tiles for a given area.  Decimal division required. Answers included

How many tiles for a given area. Decimal division required. Answers included

Suitable for year 6. Dimensions of the wall and tile are given. Decimal multiplication is needed to work out the areas of both. The children need to use decimal division to work out number of tiles. Second question requires them to cost the job using a given, simple hourly rate. Very often, with multi step problems, the children have forgotten to go back to the question and make sure they have worked it through to the end…hence the worksheet. I have hand written the answers as I find this helps them , when they are checking their work . Some of my children are very reluctant to commit pencil to paper but I find that if they see some examples, they realise they can work the answer faster if they are writing down the steps. If you do download and you have time, I’d be grateful for any feedback…good or bad. Thanks.

Multiplying Fractions to give conceptual knowledge

Multiplying Fractions to give conceptual knowledge

This was developed to give pupils a better understanding of what is going on with multiplying fractions. Each question builds on the last- encourage pupils to think about the links between each question. Which questions don’t seem to flow? The idea is that by the end of the worksheet they are not simply multiplying the numerators and denominators.

Four fantastic investigations for higher end thinking.

Four fantastic investigations for higher end thinking.

This was done on my trip to the Science Museum. We took four key shots and have come up with four investigations in relation to these photos. They start very easy and become rather tricky. These are brilliant for those students who really need to be pushed at the higher end!
