Numeracy

Numeracy

This month we will

Mental Maths:

• Approximate numbers to nearest 10, 100 or 1000 as appropriate
• Approximate 1 dp decimal numbers to nearest whole number
• Add/ subtract a single digit to/from a 1 dp decimal number (2.3 + 4  ,  5.6 – 3)
• Count, read, write, order numbers to 100,000
 Multiply and divide any decimal number by a whole no

Number:

• Multiply any 2 or 3 -digit whole number by a 2 digit no,  (e.g. 37 x 30, using partitioning strategy to multiply by 3 then by 10)
• Multiply/divide any whole number by 100, answers within 99 999, using concept that digits move two places to the left, as the value of each digit becomes 100 times larger.
• Subtract mixed numbers whose fractional parts have the same denominator.
 Multiply and divide any decimal number by a whole no

Handling Data

• Extend range of vocabulary when describing likelihood of events.
• Calculate the mean, median, mode and range.

Measures

• Calculate area of irregular shapes by counting squares
• Develop a formula for calculating the area of squares and rectangles, based upon the length of each row (or column) and the number of rows (or columns) of squares. Extend to compound shapes

Handling Data

• Construct, use and interpret bar-line graphs.
• Revision of probability describing likelihood of events.
