Week 4

Monday 27th April

Tuesday 28th April 

 

 

Hello Caernarfon!

 

Starry-Eyed Stan has set you a maths challenge for today's activity.

 

There are a number of different problems that Stan would like you to solve. You will need to use your amazing adding and subtracting skills to solve each of the problems. 

 

 

The RUCSAC method will help you solve each problem.

1. Read the question carefully. What is the important information?

2. Understand the question. What do you need to find out?

3. Choose the correct operation. Do you need to add or subtract?

4. Solve the problem. 

5. Answer the problem. 

6. Check your answer.

 

Try to complete as many of the challenge cards as you can to make Starry-Eyed Stan one very happy starfish!

 

Note to parents: The problems gradually get harder. If you find your child is answering them easily, then move them onto the harder problems.

 

Your child may use a variety of different methods to solve the problems. Encourage your child to count on, count backwards, count with physical objects and use the number line and column method.

Hello Caernarfon, we are half way through the week hurray!

 

I hope you enjoyed yesterdays problem solving challenge, as  Starry-Eyed Stan has set you another maths challenge.

 

There are a number of different problems that Stan would like you to solve. However, this time you will need to use your amazing multiplication and division skills to solve each of the problems. 

 

 

The RUCSAC method will help you solve each problem.

1. Read the question carefully. What is the important information?

2. Understand the question. What do you need to find out?

3. Choose the correct operation. Do you need to add or subtract?

4. Solve the problem. 

5. Answer the problem. 

6. Check your answer.

 

Try to complete as many of the challenge cards as you can to make Starry-Eyed Stan one very happy starfish!

 

Note to parents: The problems gradually get harder. If you find your child is answering them easily, then move them onto the harder problems.

 

The problems will cover the 2,5 and 10 times tables, all of which we have done in class. Your child may use a variety of different methods to solve the problems. We often encourage them to physically draw out the problem as seeing it visually helps them to work out the answer.

 

Happy Problem Solving!
