WALT subtract 2 mixed numbers

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter of the day on the school website. You need to try and find the maths in the picture. There is no ‘right answer’ – try and come up with as many different solutions as possible.

In this lesson we will build on and recap our knowledge from previous lessons. We are going to recap subtracting 2 mixed numbers before looking at subtracting 2 mixed numbers which break the whole. Again, we will look at various visual and abstract methods. Miss Bushell will direct you to complete one of the following challenges:

WALT multiply unit fractions by an integer

Today, we will be learning to multiply unit fractions by an integer. A unit fraction is a fraction where the numerator is always 1. An integer is where the number is a whole.

The main rule to remember is: When you're multiplying fractions by an integer (or a whole number) you multiply the numerator of the fraction by the whole number, whilst the denominator of the fraction stays the same. So remember to leave the denominator alone as it won’t be needed. You will only need the denominator when writing out your product.

Access the PowerPoint on the school website for fluency and reasoning questions. It starts off looking at multiplying using the help of visuals such as bar models. This means you can start by using repeated addition to help you understand how the multiplication works.

WALT multiply non-unit fractions by an integer

Today, we will be learning to multiply non-unit fractions by an integer. A non-unit fraction is a fraction where the numerator is not 1. An integer is where the number is a whole.

The main rule to remember is: When you're multiplying fractions by an integer (or a whole number) you multiply the numerator of the fraction by the whole number, whilst the denominator of the fraction stays the same. So remember to leave the denominator alone, as it won’t be needed. You will only need the denominator when writing out your product.

Access the PowerPoint on the school website for fluency and reasoning questions. It starts off looking at multiplying using the help of visuals such as bar models. This means you can start by using repeated addition to help you understand how the multiplication works. It’s very similar to yesterday’s principle, but looks at multiplying numbers other than 1.

WALT multiply mixed numbers by integers

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter of the day on the school website. You need to try and find the maths in the picture. There is no ‘right answer’ – try and come up with as many different solutions as possible.

In this lesson we will build on our knowledge from previous lessons and today focus on multiplying mixed numbers by integers (whole numbers). We will look at various methods to enable us to do this (e.g. repeated addition, partitioning and converting to improper fractions) then Miss Bushell will direct you to complete one of the following challenges:

WALT use our knowledge and skills to answer arithmetic questions

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter of the day on the school website. You are looking for the maths you can see in the picture. There is no correct answer but try and come up with as many solutions as you can.

In the main part of the lesson, we will be completing an arithmetic test. Mr Morris will set you off and then will go through the answers together with you once you’ve completed it. There are also additional activities to complete if you finish early.
