Home Learning

Thank you for the feedback regarding home learning. It is fantastic to see the dialogue and conversation regarding the home learning tasks continuing at home between you and your families.

For Mathematics this week, we were asked to challenge our thinking about place value by answering worded problems. These problems can be tricky to understand so it becomes important that we break down the question and write down the information that we know so that we can find the solution. For example:

What number has 7 tens, 1 more hundreds than tens and 2 more ones than tens?

We can use our place value columns to help us keep track of the information that we know.

Hundreds Tens Ones
  • After reading the question, we know that there are 7 tens

(What number has 7 tens, 1 more hundreds than tens and 2 more ones than tens?)

Hundreds Tens Ones
7
  • Let’s look at the next part of the question…

(What number has 7 tens, 1 more hundreds than tens and 2 more ones than tens?)

  • We know there are 7 tens, so 1 more would be 8
  • There are 8 hundreds
Hundreds Tens Ones
8 7
  • Let’s look at the next part of the question…

(What number has 7 tens, 1 more hundreds than tens and 2 more ones than tens?)

  • We know there are 7 tens, so 2 more would be 9
  • There are 9 ones
Hundreds Tens Ones
8 7  9
  • My number is 879

    I played the game hockey score because it’s fun and has a lot of quizzes.
