HOMEWORK 8-12-16

Due in: Tuesday 13th December

Please stick to 2 pages of A4 only. Take care with your presentation.

Topic – Can you find and present at least 5 interesting facts about Victorian Christmas Traditions and COMPARE these to your own family Christmas traditions.

e.g.

This fact was taken from the BBC website on Victorian Christmas (It would need putting into my own words)

“1848 when a British confectioner, Tom Smith, invented a bold new way to sell sweets. Inspired by a trip to Paris where he saw bon bons – sugared almonds wrapped in twists of paper – he came up with the idea of the Christmas cracker: a simple package filled with sweets that snapped when pulled apart. The sweets were replaced by small gifts and paper hats in the late Victorian period, and remain in this form as an essential part of a modern Christmas.”

My family and crackers

When the magical moment comes for my family to sit down together for lunch, one of the first highlights of the feast is for us join together in the pulling of the crackers. Brother, sister, aunty, mother… will all exchange a smile as they share the joys of pulling a cracker with one another. A particular delight is watching the faces of the younger members of the family – round, wide-eyed faces staring in awe, as a small gift falls from the bright decorative wrapping to the startling sound of a small bang! Older members of the family revel and chortle while sharing the age-old jokes found inside the crackers. Moreover… a particular delight is made over the donning of the festive, tissue hats and the beginning of the Christmas Day game of who can wear thiers the longest…

It is interesting to think how a tradition started in 1848 by a sweet seller is still very much alive in our family!

 

Maths: To strengthen your arithmetic skills, you have been given an arithmetic task to complete. Include jottings/working out where appropriate.

Flipped Learning – Grid Method for Multiplication

From your booster groups and past homework questions, multiplication has come out as an area in which we need to put a bit more practise. You should ALWAYS look at the question BEFORE leaping into using a strategy so that you can:

  • Identify what you notice about the calculation and the relationships between the numbers
  • Quickly estimate an answer to give yourself a target for which to reach
  • Decide on the most efficient method / strategy for solving the problem

The GRID METHOD is a good strategy to use for multiplication problems. A reminder of how to do this is shown below (although could make use of further workings to help add up the parts of the grid):

NOW DO THIS:

Follow the link below to a game where you can practise you grid method skills. There are 3 levels of challenge for you to choose from. Select the one that challenges you.

COPY THE QUESTIONS INTO YOUR HOMEWORK BOOK along with your workings and answers.

Good Luck!

Flipped Learning 31-11-16 BIDMAS

Hi All,

Many of you were surprised to find that one of the questions on your arithmetic that you thought to be quick and easy – you got wrong last week.

The problem was this:

120 – 60 divided by 5

Many of you worked out this problem and gave it an answer of 12

This was INCORRECT. In fact the answer we were looking for was 108! But why we hear you ask?

The answer lies with the mathematical rules of BIDMAS. (Sometimes known also as BODMAS)

What is BIDMAS? Watch and follow the video below for a quick lesson. Then see if you can work out why the answer was 108 instead of 12.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fawyxROE_ZY

 

 

Okay… you have had a bit of training now try and apply your skills…

This is a Who Wants to Be a Millionaire BIDMAS challenge. You will need a pencil and paper to help you with your workings. Who will win the full amount?

http://www.math-play.com/Order-of-Operations-Millionaire/order-of-operations-millionaire-game.html

Come and tell us about the maths in the game. Does it help you practise your BIDMAS skills?
