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.

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!

SATs Revision (Money Calculations)

SATs Revision (Money Calculations)

SATs preparation for 2018. These topic-focused SATs questions have fully-worked solutions suitable for whiteboard display or sending home to parents. Click 👉 tes.com/…/sats-revision… for similar-style question compilations on the other SATs topics.<hr>This particular compilation is from the MEASUREMENT strand and contains questions involving calculations with money. Note that the methods in my solutions are not restricted to standard multiplication and division techniques - if the multiplication or division is difficult I have often used an intuitive method to obtain the answer. Students can use whatever method they want - as long as they show sufficient working out.<hr>I have designed this compilation to be printed as an A4 or A5 booklet which is in the style of the actual SATs papers and is convenient for use in class or as homework. It can even be given to individual students if a parent is asking for ‘some more work’! KEY POINTS: I have provided full answers, with comments and working where helpful. I have maintained the style of the actual SATs questions so that students can become comfortable with the way that SATs questions are presented. Most of the questions are from actual SATs papers, but I have also added questions so that this resource matches the requirements the current curriculum better than the older resources that are still in common use (note that many of the older resources of this type contain questions on topics which are no longer examined). I have spent a lot of time arranging the questions so that there is a general increase in difficulty as students work through them, and so that they fit on the pages better – this means less wasted space and significant paper-saving when printing 😃 <hr>👍If you like this resource, then please rate it and/or leave a comment💬.

Crack The Safe - Congruence and Similarity

Crack The Safe - Congruence and Similarity

Another “Crack The Safe” activity but on congruence and similarity this time. This enables students to self-check answers as their answer needs to appear in the options. It should generate a bit of discussion too, but the intention for me is to use these as starters or plenaries. Amended question 2.
