  • Basic Skills: Whole Numbers & Decimals

    New Topic:Basic Skills: Whole Numbers & Decimals

    Decimals

    New Topic: Decimals, TJ Level F Ch13

    During this topic you will further develop your ability to work with decimal numbers to be able to:

    • recall number facts quickly and use them accurately in calculations (inc times tables to at least 12×12 and common squares and cubes)
    • apply the four operations to whole number calculations using a variety of mental and written methods
    • round any number to a given number of decimal places
    • round any number to a given number of significant figures
    • use rounding skills to estimate and check calculations
    • use order of operations (BODMAS) in calculations
    • solve problems in familiar and unfamiliar contexts

    Symmetry

    Thursday 30 October, Period 5

    New Topic: Symmetry, TJ Level D Ch7. Display photo images of reflection in nature to stimulate discussion. Introduce reflection/line symmetry – Ex1 (photocopy pages instead of tracing objects into jotters). End lesson with Halloween symmetry pictures (complete & colour).

    Decimals

    During this topic you will further develop your ability to work with decimal numbers.

    This will include:
    Adding and subtracting decimals
    • mentally for 2 digit numbers with 1 decimal place
    • without a calculator for 4 digits up to 2 decimal places
    • with a calculator for any pair of numbers but at most 3 decimal places in the answer

    Multiplying and dividing decimals
    • without a calculator for 4 digits up to 2 decimal places
    • with a calculator for any pair of numbers but at most 3 decimal places in the answer

    Rounding to at least one decimal place
    Using decimals in applications of number, measurement and money
    Explore the contexts in which problems involving decimal fractions occur and solve related problems using a variety of methods

    Statistics 2

    New Topic: Statistics, Ch9 p104.

    In this topic you will learn how to calculate the Mean (average) of a set of data and make comparisons using the mean.  We will also revisit organising data using, for example, pictigraphs, line graphs and pie charts.

    Algebra 2 – Solving Equations

     
    Topic objectives:

    • to be able to solve linear equations with positive integer solutions, e.g.

    5x + 3 = 18
    4x – 2 = 2x + 12

    • to be able to create equations from word problems and solve them
