Week Beginning 11th January 2021

11.01.21

Hello Kensukes and Potters! It’s Miss Stephens who will be planning your maths for this week!

We are going to be learning about decimals! But don’t worry we will take it easy to begin with!

Monday

First warm up! Try the flashback 4!

Decimals up to 2 decimal places

Remember tos:

I can recognise the value of each digit up to 2 decimal places.

I can read a place value chart with counters and tell the number it represents.

I can compare numbers up to 2 decimal places.

I can solve problems with numbers with 2 decimal places.

Vocabulary

Ones

Tens

Hundreds

Tenths

Hundredths

Place value chart

Place value counters

1. Watch this video:   an introduction to hundredths
2. Watch this video:

He will explain to you the importance of the place value of decimals.

Task 1 – fluency

Decimals can also be shown with place value coin cards.  Here is an example:

This represents = 2 ones + 5 tenths + 4 hundredths = 2.54

Your turn! Have a go at some questions like this.  There are three different levels for you to have a go!

Task 2- reasoning and problem solving

Now that you have mastered the idea of the place value of some decimal numbers, let’s try to really challenge you mathematicians.

Below is an example question.

You can use a place value chart to help you.

Work out the value of each letter first to then find the one that is different/ odd:

Here is my working:

A = 3 ones + 1 tenths + 15 hundredths

So 3 ones + 2 tenths + 5 hundredths = 3.25

B= three ones, 2 tenths and 5 hundredths = 3.25

A and B are the same

C= 3.25 so A, B and C are the same.

D= count the place value counters.

3 ones, 2 tenths, 6 hundredths = 3.26

D is the odd one out because it has 6 hundredths whereas A, B and C have 5 hundredths.

Your turn: Pick a level that works for you. Try to challenge yourselves at home.

I'm looking forward to seeing your maths work!

Monday maths work! Wow! What whizzy workers we have in year 6!

12/01/21   -  Tuesday

Warm up with flashback 4!

Decimals up to 3 decimal places

Remember tos:

I can recognise the value of each digit up to 3 decimal places.

I can read a place value chart with counters and tell the number it represents.

I can compare numbers up to 3 decimal places.

I can solve problems with numbers with 3 decimal places.

1. Let’s start by watching the video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbZHJdpX1S0

An Introduction to Thousandths

Matholia educational maths video on introduction to thousandths.#matholia #singaporemath #introduction #thousandthshttps://matholia.comLearning Targets:Explo...

Decimals can also be shown with place value coin cards and base ten equipment.  Sometimes they will put both in a question. Here is an example:

My working:

However, this question is a bit tricky.  When you count the digits there is more than 10 counters in a space. This can’t happen so a group of 10 will need to be carried to the next space over.

Look at the thousands first:

thousands = 3

Hundredths = 10 = this is a problem.  These will all move to the tenths column.  10 hundredths = 1 tenth

Tenths = 15 + 1 tenth from the hundredths = 16 tenths.  10 of the tenths will move to the ones.  10 tenths = 1 one. This means we will have 6 tenths left.

 So the answer for this question is = 51.603  As a mixed number it would be 51  603

1000

Your turn! Have a go at some questions like this.  There are three different levels for you to have a go!

Fluency work

Task 2- reasoning and problem solving

Now that you have mastered the idea of the place value of thousandths, let’s try to really challenge you mathematicians.  Below is an example question with my working to help.

Another day, another set of great maths work submitted! (Tuesday maths work)

In this video, learn how to read/say decimal numbers to thousandths, as well as briefly seeing the connection between each place (tenths, hundredths, and tho...

Have a go at making and reading numbers with decimals up to 3 decimal places. There are 3 different levels for you to choose.

TASK 1 - FLUENCY

Task 2- reasoning and problem solving

Now that you have mastered the idea of the place value of thousandths, let’s try to really challenge you! Be sure to read the questions carefully.

WOW! Lots of whizzy workers in Year 6! It's great to see all your maths work! Plus, it is all so neatly presented! Huge well done! (Wednesday work)

14.01.21   (Thursday)

Let's warm up!

Today, we are going to look at multiplying numbers by 10, 100 and 1000. We do a lot of this in our CLIC lessons so you should be familiar with this. If not, don’t worry, I will walk you through it!

Remember tos:

I can use a place value chart to put my number in the chart.

I know that I multiply by 10 by moving the digits 1 place to the left.

I know that I multiply by 100 by moving the digits 2 places to the left.

I know that I multiply by 1000 by moving the digits 3 places to the left.

I can solve problems with numbers with multiplying digits by 10, 100 and 1000.
