#### RUCSAC reminder sheet, for maths word problems

There are many RUCSAC resources available... a method for solving maths word problems.
This is, I hope, child-friendly - I intend to use it with my new class.
I have taken the main elements and someone else's lovely rucksack image and made it all colourful.
I hope it saves someone else some time. :-)

#### 'RUCSAC' breakdown to help solve word problems

I created this presentation to help my class understand how to answer word problems using the well known mnemonic 'RUCSAC&' - read, underline, calculation, solve, answer, check. I used this for my Year 4&';s but I have also used it in Year 5. It can be used for any year group and any ability level - just change the word problems at the end to make them more appropriate.\n\nAlso another tip!!: I already had the word problems wrote out on the flipchart so that I could model how to use RUCSAC.

#### Table Splat! (Times Tables Game)

A game that can be played in pairs, threes or independently. Please note that this game focuses on times tables facts from 2 to 10 to ensure children are confident in these tables before progressing to the 11s and 12s, which will need to be taught subsequently.
Children need a 'Table Splat' mat and counters (different coloured counters for each child). Children take turns to turn over a card, revealing a times tables question. The child who is the first to place their counter on the correct answer (whilst shouting 'SPLAT!') can leave their counter on the board. The winner is the player with the most counters on the board once all of the times table cards have been used.
Differentiate by choosing the multiplication cards relevant for that child, depending on which times table they are currently working on.
*Update: 6s and 9s have been underlined, to avoid confusion.*

#### Understanding the role of the equals sign

I couldn't find any materials on this when I needed to teach my year 3 class what the equals sign REALLY meant.
I have included the lesson plan I used, the 3 differentiated worksheets and a Powerpoint I made.
Please keep in mind this is for year 3/4 children (as from previous comments) not particularly designed for higher year groups.
Also have included a homework set of resource sheets (could alternatively be used in class as a reinforcement at a later date.)

#### Maths investigation - Dice score

A Japanese theme game. The children play the game which leads on to - Investigating the frequency score of 2 dice. (What are the best numbers to choose to help you win the game next time?) Lessons include find the odd one out starter activities, success criteria and worksheets. There are also questions to encourage the children’s mathematical thinking. My class find it fun to make up a quick Sumo dance… where they bow to each other before and after each game.
