Today’s Math Work

From yesterday’s lesson continue working on the work you haven’t completed then move onto that in the next level.

Grp 1-regional models-drawing & making  3/4-2/3; 6/8-8/10; 4/5-7/10; 3/4-6/8; what’s the same as/equivalent fractions to these- 2/3? 4/5? 1/2?- what’s the pattern?

If I cut up a piece of wood that is 10 cm in length and I gave 4/10 to my brother and ½ to my friend which person would receive the most? Why?

(You may use a diagram to show your understanding).

 

Pencils come in boxes of 16. If I give 5/16 of one box to my Sarah and ¼ of another to Bob. Which person will receive the larger amount of pencils? Why? You may use a model or diagram to show your understanding.

Now if I give 3/8 of one box to my Sarah and ¼ of another to Bob. Which person will receive the larger amount of pencils? Why? You may use a model or diagram to show your understanding.

 

Grp 2 –difference between N&D group-Jenny breaks her Mars Bar into 8 pieces and eats 6 pieces. Paul breaks his Mars Bar into 5 pieces and eats 3 pieces. Who has the most left over? Explain using fractions

Pieces of wood are 10 cm in length. I gave 4/5 of one to my brother and 2/3 of another to my friend- which person would receive the most? Why?

Compare these fractions 6/10 and 2/3;  9/11-4/5; 7/8-6/7; 12/14-16/18; 13/14-7/8

 

Grp 5-extension- Compare these fractions 6/10 and 2/3;  9/11-4/5; 7/8-6/7; 12/14-16/18; 13/14-7/8

I have a 100g bag of jelly snakes. It has 13 snakes in it- I ate 10. Sam has a 100g bag of jelly beans. It has 22 jelly beans and she ate 17. Who ate more weight in jelly lollies? Prove it.

47/55=56/66-true or false? Prove it.  74/80>19/20-true or false? Prove it.  121/470 < 25% true or false? Prove it

The population of Sarajevo is 520 000  2/3 of them have dark hair. 350 000 of them speak more than 1 language. Which is bigger? Prove it.

I can think about the structure of the text I am planning to write

Look at your notes from lesson 1 – Which Text Type do your first ideas suit best? Which will you do (Explanation or Information Text)? Why?

Create a plan using format charts as a guide. The guides can be found in our class folder on studentshare. Think about what your audience would want to know. Which paragraphs might need more research? (remember to research using a range of sources)

For today write your opening paragraph using format chart.

This Week’s BTN Homework

This week’s BTN homework is a persuasive piece.

Have a look at this piece on The Seed Bank.

Your task is to write a persuasive piece – ‘”The Seed Bank is/is not a Waste of Money

You choose the side you want to argue on. Make sure you have an introduction and conclusion, and for each of your body paragraphs you give a reason backed up with evidence. Don’t forget to use those AFOREST techniques and lots of emotive language.

(Thanks Ant from antsclass for this post)
