Maths

Maths Lesson 1

LI: To be able to add whole numbers with more than four digits.

  • Today, you will be revising your use of addition methods to solve problems. In particular, you will revise the column method to add whole numbers together.
  • Ensure you carry accurately to avoid minor errors. Use the examples on the clip attached and your knowledge from previous lessons to do so.
  • Complete each section in turn, the video stops after describing how to solve each section.

Maths Lesson 2

LI: To be able to multiply 3-digits by 2-digits

  • Today you will practice multiplying a 3-digit number by a 2-digit number.
  • What methods can you recall that could be used to solve a problem like the one below?
  • 342 x 12
  • Which method do you think is most suitable to do so?
  • In class, we have focused mainly on the use of column multiplication. Practice using column multiplication to solve the above example. What answer did you get?
  • You should have got the answer of 4,104. If your answer was a lot smaller than this, you may have forgotten a vital step when multiplying by the ten from 12…a place holding zero.

Maths Lesson 3

LI: To be able to multiply up to a 4-digit number by a 2-digit number.

  • In today’s lesson, you will expand on your learning from yesterday by including an additional digit when multiplying – the thousand place value.
  • If you found yesterday’s learning difficult, it would be useful for you to revisit the video from yesterday before attempting today’s work.
  • You will use the same column multiplication method to solve the problems in today’s lesson. This will be solved in the same steps that you used yesterday but with one more additional multiplication. Use a times table grid or write down the times tables from 1-9 to help you solve these problems more easily.

Maths Lesson 4

LI: To be able to practice dividing a 4-digit number by 1-digit

  • In Maths today, you shall practice dividing from the beginning of Year 6 to check our understanding and efficiency in using an important mathematical method – short division (the bus stop method).
  • It is important to remember that whilst we may show a division calculation like so:

4532 ÷ 4

  • When we use the bus stop method, it is presented with the divisor (4) on the outside of the bus stop and the dividend (4532) on the inside of the bus stop.
  • Complete your activity sheet, referring back to the video at sections that you find difficult.

Maths Lesson 5

LI: To be able to practice long division.

  • Today, you will recap the principle of long division. It is an important method to practice and try to master for when we have questions that involve dividing a number by more than one digit – for example: 4190 ÷ 35.
  • The example above can be solved through the use of short division but will be difficult to represent and makes it far more likely to make mistakes when carrying to the next place value.
  • The long division method clearly presents our carried values from one step to the next.
