Maths - 5 Activities

This arithmetic quiz revises the multiplication of numbers by a 2-digit number. Students have learnt this during the spring term, but may need a reminder about their place holder.

 

I've attached a video from Khan Academy where he breaks down how to do the method. He carries his numbers to the top of his calculation. At Ripple, we carry our numbers slightly different, but the end result is the same. The most important bit, is that students cross out their carries after they use them so that they don't accidentally use them twice.

 

The quiz should take about 30 minutes. After they complete it, they should check their answers and correct any mistakes. Questions that were difficult should be practised with different numbers .

Activity 2: Ordering and Comparing Decimals

In this activity, you will learn how to order and compare decimals, paying careful attention to place value.
Start by watching the video. Then continue to work on the activity. The answers are included to check your work. If you get it wrong, you should figure out why you got the answer incorrect.
If the sheet cannot be printed off, then it should be completed in the workbook sent home or or paper. Questions should be clearly labelled and presentation should be neat.

Activity 3: Understanding Percentages

In this activity, you will learn what a percentage is.
Start by watching the video. Then continue to work on the activity. The answers are included to check your work. If you get it wrong, you should figure out why you got the answer incorrect.
If the sheet cannot be printed off, then it should be completed in the workbook sent home or or paper. Questions should be clearly labelled and presentation should be neat.

Activity 4: Percentages as Fractions and Decimals

In this activity, students will learn how to represent percentages as fractions and decimals.
Start by watching the video. Then continue to work on the activity. The answers are included to check your work. If you get it wrong, you should figure out why you got the answer incorrect.
If the sheet cannot be printed off, then it should be completed in the workbook sent home or or paper. Questions should be clearly labelled and presentation should be neat.

Activity 5: Equivalent Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

In this activity, students will build on the concept of equivalence and understand that fractions, decimals and percentages can be equivalent to each other.
Start by watching the video. Then continue to work on the activity. The answers are included to check your work. If you get it wrong, you should figure out why you got the answer incorrect.
If the sheet cannot be printed off, then it should be completed in the workbook sent home or or paper. Questions should be clearly labelled and presentation should be neat.
