01.02.21 - Decimals

This week's Maths lessons focus on adding and subtracting decimals.

 

Monday 1st February:

Task 1: Spend 5-10 minutes practising your times tables on TTRockStars.

Task 2: To add decimals with one and two decimal places mentally

This lesson focuses adding decimals with one and two decimal places mentally. Before you get started, watch this video for a refresher on place value with decimals.

Once you have watched the video, have a go at the activities as suggested below. All work sheets are available to download at the bottom of this page.

  • Must: Complete Challenge 1 which asks you to add decimals with just one decimal place and then move onto those with two decimals – all mentally (if this seems a little too tricky, have a go at starting with the Support Sheet instead).
  • Should: Complete Challenges 1 and 2 which moves on to some calculations with more carry overs and where you need to think very carefully about place value as not all numbers have the same amount of decimal places.
  • Could: Complete Challenges 1, 2 and 3 which moves onto you explaining how you could use your addition facts to help you as well as thinking of your own addition calculations (Extension: For a little more challenge, have a go at the Extension Sheet available below.)

 

Tuesday 2nd February:

Task 1: Choose and play a game from the 'Play' section on Mathletics.

Task 2: To add decimals with one and two decimal places using the formal method.

This lesson provides lots of opportunities to practise using the formal method for addition with decimals. Before you get started, re-watch the place value with decimals video as a reminder of place value as well as two videos to support your understanding of the method for formal addition with decimals.

Once you have watched the video, have a go at the activities as suggested below. All work sheets are available to download at the bottom of this page.

  • Must: Complete Challenge 1 which asks you to practise using the formal method of addition with decimals (if this seems a little too tricky, have a go at starting with the Support Sheet instead).
  • Should: Complete Challenges 1 and 2 which moves onto larger numbers with varying numbers of decimal places.
  • Could: Complete Challenges 1, 2 and 3 which asks you to complete some word problems using the formal written method of addition with decimals. (Extension: For a little more challenge, have a go at the Extension Sheet available below.)

 

Wednesday 3rd February:

Task 1: Spend 5-10 minutes practising your times tables on TTRockStars.

Task 2: To subtract decimals with one and two decimal places mentally

Once you have watched the video, have a go at the activities as suggested below. All work sheets are available to download at the bottom of this page.

  • Must: Complete Challenge 1 which asks you to subtract decimals with just one decimal place and then move onto those with two decimals – all mentally (if this seems a little too tricky, have a go at starting with the Support Sheet instead).
  • Should: Complete Challenges 1 and 2 which moves on to you thinking of possible calculations based on a given answer and some decimal subtraction calculations with numbers with varying numbers of decimal places.
  • Could: Complete Challenges 1, 2 and 3 which asks you to find missing numbers in subtraction calculations and has some questions with two numbers to subtract. (Extension: For a little more challenge, have a go at the Extension Sheet available below.)

  • Could: Complete Challenges 1, 2 and 3 which asks you to complete some word problems using the formal written method of subtraction with decimals. (Extension: For a little more challenge, have a go at the Extension Sheet available below.)

 

Friday 5th February:

Task 1: Spend 5-10 minutes practising your times tables on TTRockStars.

Task 2: Assessment

To ensure that the skills you have learnt are not forgotten, we would like you to have a go at the end of unit assessment available below (you are used to doing these in school on Fridays). You can also find the answers so that you can check how you did once you have finished (no peeking before you're done!)
