Morning Maths Challenges - Y5/Y6

Morning Maths Challenges - Y5/Y6

This is 14 weeks worth of Morning Maths Challenges. Each week contains 5 days worth of questions (4 for week one due an INSET in my school) with answers. Each day contains 15 tricky, 15 trickier and 15 trickiest maths questions for children to answer. I have used these in my Y5 class for the past two years and I found that they help children to make progress - I use it as a revision task every morning and spend approximately 20-30 minutes on this task each day.

Standard Form revision

Standard Form revision

Keeping with the theme of the revision lessons already on here this lesson looks at the ability of students being able to write as a standard form, or as an ordinary number. It also looks at multiplication or division of numbers written in standard form. This lesson is part of the bundle I am currently putting together for both my higher level and foundation level students. The bundle can be found from the following link. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/gcse-revision-lessons-11733758

The Sultan and The Vizier

The Sultan and The Vizier

This is a starter to introduce indices. There is a story on the worksheet that the students read; it is about how chess is originated. Then students work on the questions at the bottom. After, say, 5 minutes, students check their answers via the presentation. It is best if the teacher discusses the answers with students while going through the answers, like "why do you think the Vizier / Sultan is right?" etc. The second slide in the presentation is for curious minds. The details are as follows: 1. The first 16 squares are the values of powers of 2, showing the number of grains that has to be placed on each square. 2. A3, the 17th square, has 65,536 grains. As approximately 50,000 grains make 1 kg, I accepted it roughly 1 kg, although it is a bit too much of a rounding. 3. Square 30 has a van of grains, square 40 has a ship of grains, and around 56-57th square, it is approximately the world's rice production in 2015. The last square should hold the amount which the world could produce in approximately 1570 years. And we haven't added these figures yet! Please do not hesitate to contact for anything. I appreciate your kind feedback. Thank you.
