Tuesday 23rd February

Today's lesson will be an arithmetic test revising the four operations. 

You do not need to print off this test. Simply jot the question numbers 1-21 down and write the answers along with evidence of working them out. 


Try and attempt to answer all of the questions. If you are really stuck, see the advice below and if you are still really stuck, ask an adult to get in touch via email.


This will be a great way to see if you are able to remember things such as:

-inverse operation, when you are given half of the calculation with the answer, you may need to do the opposite calculation (depending on which value is missing). For example, ? + 42 = 90, you would then carry out 90- 42 to give you the answer. However, if you did 600 - ? = 200 you would still need to carry out a subtraction 600- 200 = 400, therefore the answer is 600 - 400 = 200. 

-column addition and subtraction, making sure you line up your digits correctly and ALWAYS put the largest valued number on the top. 

-adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator (the number below the line of the fraction 2/3 = 3). If the denominators are the same, you do not add or subtract those, you only add or subtract the numerator (the number above the line of the fraction 2/3 = 2). For example, 2/6 + 1/6 = 3/6. 


New learning:


Multiplying 3 numbers. For example, 2 x 2 x 3. To calculate this, first you must carry out 2 x 2 which is 4. Then, you must carry out 4 x 3 = 12. Therefore, the answer is 12. 

However, don't worry if you find this a little tricky because this will be covered in this week's learning.
