working with negative numbers on number line

Adding subtracting negative and positive integers with a number line.The game is for two players, A and B.The rules1. The counter(red small triangle) is put on the space below 0.2. The players take turn two throw two dice. (If dice roller is not visible on your activinspire go to:Tools/More Tools/Edit User Defined Buttons/Commands/All commandsscroll down and add dice roller from left to right. Now it is visible on your toolbox.)3. The total score for a throw is left number-right number on the dice. If the total score is positive, move the counter right. If the total score is negative, move the counter left. 4. The game is over when the counter lands on or beyond the 12 or -12 space. If the counter lands on 12,player A wins. If it lands on -12 player B wins.

Year 4: Mental Arithmetic

Year 4: Mental Arithmetic

This is a collection of mental maths papers for Year 4. The spreadsheet includes four sheets differentiated four ways (LA, MA, HA and Challenge) and includes answer sheets. What makes these different to other published mental maths material, is that each sheet can be randomised by simply pushing F9 on your keyboard, so there are almost an unlimited combination of questions for each paper. This means they can be used as often as you like with very little repetition. Use them daily, weekly, termly or as you wish. Use them for early bird, homework or to regularly assess the children's mental computation. Also included on the sheet is a record sheet if you wish to track pupil progress - simply fill in the names and record the results in the grid (scores will be colour coded for easy analysis). The previews represent just a fraction of the sheets that can be produced!Objectives covered:Count in multiples of 6, 7, 9, 25 and 1,000Find 1,000 more or less than a given numberCount backwards through 0 to include negative numbersRecognise the place value of each digit in a four-digit number (1,000s, 100s, 10s, and 1s)Order and compare numbers beyond 1,000Round any number to the nearest 10, 100 or 1,000Read Roman numerals to 100 (I to C)Recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 × 12Use place value, known and derived facts to multiply and divide mentally, including: multiplying by 0 and 1; dividing by 1; multiplying together 3 numbersRecognise and use factor pairs and commutativity in mental calculationsCount up and down in hundredths; recognise that hundredths arise when dividing an object by 100 and dividing tenths by 10Add and subtract fractions with the same denominatorRecognise and write decimal equivalents of any number of tenths or hundredsRecognise and write decimal equivalents to ¼ , ½, ¾Find the effect of dividing a one- or two-digit number by 10 and 100, identifying the value of the digits in the answer as ones, tenths and hundredthsRound decimals with 1 decimal place to the nearest whole numberCompare numbers with the same number of decimal places up to 2 decimal placesConvert between different units of measure [for example, kilometre to metre; hour to minute]Read, write and convert time between analogue and digital 12- and 24-hour clocksSolve problems involving converting from hours to minutes, minutes to seconds, years to months, weeks to daysSolve problems involving increasingly harder fractions to calculate quantities, and fractions to divide quantities, including non-unit fractions where the answer is a whole numberMore like this...
