MONDAY
Open ended maths question to start the week
These crime statistics are nationwide, not just Nelson.
(Just in case you are wondering "where is the maths in this Mr Phillips", your ability to analyse data and come up with conclusions about that data is at the essence of Mathematics. It is the same as working out 4x7= 28, because you have identified the data and made some informed strategic thinking to get the answer.)

LEARNING INTENTION
I am learning to use compensation from tidy numbers to help me solve division problems
LEARNING INTENTION
to use reversibility to help me solve division problems
Okay and just for a change of scene, try these Khan Academy division exercises with remainders CLICK HERE
(For some of the problems, especially those using π (the greek letter Pi which is the ratio of a circles circumference to its diameter or θ (the greek letter Theta which represents an angle)
Multiply the numbers just as if they were whole numbers.
Line up the numbers on the right - do not align the decimal points.
Starting on the right, multiply each digit in the top number by each digit in the bottom number, just as with whole numbers.
Add the products.
Place the decimal point in the answer by starting at the right and moving a number of places equal to the sum of the decimal places in both numbers multiplied.
See how it moves three places across because in the question there were three decimals places 2.77 has two and 2.8 has one.
37.7 x 2.8 =
3.77x2.8=
3.77x 28=
3.77 x 0.28=

Once you have completed these I have a worksheet for you sitting on my desk, so come and show me your answers and we can get you the worksheet.
So what is the place value of 5 in the number
654.213?
What is the place value of 1 in the number
654.213?
What is the place value of 7 in the number
845.769?
What is the place value of 9 in the number
845.769?
Please write down the questions in your books.
Once you have completed this, write down the two numbers in word form. If you are unsure of how to do this, have a watch of this resource. FRIDAY LEARNING INTENTION Put decimals on a number line This is a quick warm up and a quick refresher of things you have already learnt. Spend five minutes practising on THIS LINK
