Maths Challenge – word problems

Hi 1-2 E,

It was great to observe that many of you recalled Division facts and strategies from last semester. For the next two weeks we will be working on Multiplication in Maths. Your skip counting practice will be very useful.

For those of you who are looking for some extra challenge in Maths (especially Grade 2), here is the link to worded problems at a Grade 3 level.  http://au.ixl.com/math/year-3/addition-subtraction-multiplication-and-division-word-problems

The problems require you to use addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. They are generated randomly so you will need to decide which operation to use…

This is an important part of developing your reasoning and logic skills. Good luck and let us know how you go! (Alternatively, this link will take you to some useful Multiplication practice http://au.ixl.com/math/year-2/multiplication-sentences)

It’s fun to be back!

Welcome to term three!

We are glad to be back and we are looking forward to sharing our learning with you again.

In Maths we are learning about Division. Division means making groups, sharing, doing division sums… We played Smarties Maths. 6 people had to share 60 smarties BUT there were ten, twenty and thirty in three different baskets. We had to decide which basket to stand beside so that we would get the most for each person. Try this at home. It’s tricky at first!

We are meeting our study group each morning in the Multi-Purpose room. We choose a goal to work on for the day or the week. It could be a reading or a writing goal. Dion’s goal is to find synonyms of words (words that mean the same thing.) Steven’s goal is to read over his work to check that it makes sense. Grace’s goal is to show the differences between narrative and non-fiction texts. The adult leader helps us to achieve our goals.

We have started Social and Emotiaonal Learning. This is to help us stay calm, control our feelings and act appropriately at school and at home.

We have a song to learn for the Concert. It’s called “Purple People Eater”. Don’t forget to practise!

We will miss Jennifer a lot this term!

Thank you for visiting and Don’t forget to comment!

Fair Sharing

In Maths we have been focusing on Division.

We solved word problems on the ixl website http://au.ixl.com/math/year-1/division-word-problems

We wrote our own problems and stories.

We drew pictures and diagrams.

In the photographs, some of us are sharing 12 blocks.

What did you find out?

What have you learned about Division? 

Do you have a Division story or problem to share with us?
