Starter - Log on TTR and do at least 10 minutes. I will be giving the person who has improved the most a Friday certificate. Remember, you only need to 10 minutes a day to see improvement. 


Main lesson


Today, we are going to be looking at using our skill of short multiplication, and use it to problem solve. 

When we problem solve, getting an answer we know is wrong, is just as important as getting a right answer. Knowing somethings doesn't work is still learning. 


Some pointers we always use in class.

  • Always start with reading the question very carefully.
  • Look at what information you are given.
  • Look at what information you do not have.
  • Break the question down into smaller bits and work through each part separately.
  • Check your answer makes sense.
  • Try to do the inverse to help you check your answer.
