Click on this link for a quiz on some of the work we have done up to now.

- If you see a yellow bar in the top of the Web browser, you just click on the yellow and select ‘allow blocked content’
- The quiz selects 10 questions at random from 20 questions so you get some different questions each time you reload the page
- You have 20 minutes to answer the 10 questions! You can still check the answers after the 20 minutes, it just won’t score
- Let me know if you want more of these quizzes

Having had a look at the ‘four functions’ applied to whole numbers, and a bit of measuring, we move slowly into fractions. The links below will help you get ahead with what we need to cover…

- BBC Skillswise page on fractions
- A series of YouTube videos on fractions by a teacher from Manchester. These are good and worth watching, but you might want to wait until we cover it all in class.

- Link to a really detailed step by step explanation of Lattice Multiplication for those who like it
- Print a sheet of Lattice Multiplication blanks
- Print a sheet of squared paper to keep your columns neat
- Print a handout with some extra information on place notation

And, as people seemed mostly quite confident with the work this morning, you might want to try a couple of tests! These will open in a new window. You might get a yellow band at the top of the new window warning about ‘javascript’ or ‘active content’. Just click on the yellow band and then click ‘allow this page’, depending on your security setting.

- Mental methods: how to add and subtract without writing anything down – good when its small easy numbers like £30 plus £14
- Written methods: for when the questions get harder
- Problem questions: you have to recognise what calculation to do in the ‘real’ world, and this page tells you about reading the problems
