Lesson 1

LI: To solve World Book Day themed problems.

Work through the booklet solving the clues to discover the mystery.

Maths Lesson 2

LI: To solve decimal, fraction and percentage reasoning problems.

Look through the powerpoint offering examples of reasoning and problem solving questions linked to our topic this week.

Each problem offers a guided method of solving similar problems to those on your worksheet.

• Think back to what we have learnt about equivalents and how to convert from one form to another.
• This can be through multiplying a decimal by 100 to convert it to a percentage.
• Making a fraction's denominator into 100 to show it as parts of 100 or % - remember this method is not always effective when the denominator is not a factor of 100.
• And more!
