MATHS

We are doing our maths book this week and we have it laid out day by day with examples for you to help you along.

Chapter 31- RULES & PROPERTIES

MONDAY PG 133

EXAMPLES

Work out the pattern first

e.g. !a.   9,   18,   27,   36,    45 ,    54,    63,    72

+9       +9        +9         +9            +9              +9           +9

2d.   57,   56,   54,   51,   47,   42,   36,   29,

-1     -2      -3     -4     -5     -6      -7

3c.     3125, ÷5    625, ÷5   125, ÷5   25, ÷5   5, ÷5   1

4f. ,    ,    ,    ,    ,

In this one keep referring back to original fraction- 2nd one is twice 1st one so multiply top by 2

3rd  one is 3 times 1st  one so multiply top by 3

4th one is 4 times 1st one so multiply top by 4

Then 5th one is multiply top and bottom of 1st by 5

And 6th one is multiply top and bottom of 1st one by 6

So you should get  ,  ,   ,   ,   ,

5c. multiply both sides of the ratio so you don’t upset the balance

4:7,   8:14,   12:21,   16:28,   20:35

Look at 1st one all the time-  2nd one is multiply 1st by 2/ 3rd one is multiply 1st by 3/ 4th one is multiply 1st by 4 etc

6f.   14,   17,    22,     29,     38,      49

+3      +5    +7    +9     +11           you are adding on the next odd number

CLASSWORK

PG 133  No 1- b,c,e,f,h/ No2- b,c,e,f,h/ No 3 b,d,f,h/ No 4 b,d,f/ No 5 b,d,f/ No 6 b,d,f

TUESDAY

Page 134

Q1. Look at the example above No. 1

Now do 1a & 1c(addition)- 6 different ways

*Does the order matter?

Q2. Now do 2a & 2c (Multiplication this time)  6 different ways

*Does the order matter in multiplication?

Q3. Does order matter in these addition & subtraction sums

(Start at first no. & work to the end of the mathematical sentence)

Do these sums:     No. 3a  1&2/ No. 3c 1&2/ No. 3e 1&2

Q4. Do each of these sums twice starting with a different operation each time

Example:  4a    4 x 7 +2=     (4 x 7) =28 +2=30

4 x 7 + 2=    ( 7 + 2)=9 x 4=36

Now ( like above in 2 ways) do No.s  4b, 4d, 4f, 4h

WE SEE ORDER DOES MATTER AND SO WE MUST FOLLOW AN ORDER WHEN DOING SUMS. This is:

B   Brackets

O   Of ( which means multiply)

M   Multiply

D   Division

S   Subtraction

Following this order do these sums No. 5a, 5c, 5d, 5f, 5g

Example 5b    (5 + 4) x 6 =       {  In BOMDAS – B comes before M so do inside Brackets and then Multiply your answer}     (5+4)x6=     [9×6=54}

WEDNESDAY

Pg 135

Q1. Remember  BOMDAS – Brackets, Of,X,÷,+,-

In No 1 we are only going to use one way doing the sums ( THE CORRECT WAY PLEASE !!!!) using BOMDAS- put in brackets if it helps you figure out what you must do first

Example 1a.   36 ÷ 3 +6=      look at BOMDAS ÷ comes before + so we’ll do that first

36÷3=12 +6 =18                           NOW DO No. 1b,c,f,g,j,k

Q2.- Q5       Remember BOMDAS again.

Example 3d.  691-86 x 7 =              Multiplication before Subtraction in BOMDAS

691-(86×7)=

691-602=89

NOW DO Q2 a&b, Q3 a&b, Q4 a&b, Q5 a&b

Q6-12 The numbers here are bigger so you can use your calculator if you like. Remember BOMDAS again.

NOW DO Q 6,7,8,9,10,11,12 ( a only) 7 Q 13,14,15,16

THURSDAY

Pg 136

Do Q1,2,3,4.             Remember BOMDAS when doing them :   Brackets, Of,X,÷,+,-

Do Q 5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12 ( a only in all of these & you may use your calculator)

No 13 you must use the 3 numbers in the corners of the triangle and 2 operations( +,-,x,÷) & arrive at the no. in the middle.

Example 13a    Look at it in the book please.   You have 18, 24 & 56 and you must arrive at 488

18 x 24 = 432 +56 = 488

Now Do 13c & 13e

Now Do “a” only in No.s 16,17,18,19,20,21 (You may use your calculator)

FRIDAY

Pg 139 LOOK BACK CHAPTER

Magic Multiplication Squares

The outside lines tell you what to do.

 x 8 9 8 64 72 9 72 81

Put your finger on 8 green down and 9 green on top, carry those fingers out straight and they meet at 72

STEP 1; Figure out what is missing in top line

If I take 9 green down out aonto 72 what should be on the top line there, 72÷9=8, so I put in red 8 on top

STEP 2: Now I can figure out the last missing no. ; Ta 8 green out and bring down number from the top of missing box line- that’s 8 red so 8×8=64

Now try 1b & 1d

Q2-5 Long Multiplication( FOR GOODNESS SAKE REMEMBER THE MAGIC ZERO!!!!)

Count number of numbers after the decimal point in the sum and have the same number of numbers after the decimal in your answer.

Examples

2a

5.6                                         Now DO  Q 2b,3b,4b,5b

X 3.7

392

+1680

20.72                      ( .6 & .7 In sum so in ans 2 no.s after decimal   .72)

———————————————————————————————————————————-

Example 6a

38.6

X 0.42

772

15440

16.212                    (.6 & .42 in sum , that’s 3 no.s after decimal so same in ans .212)

Now Do  Q6b & 7b

NOW WE ARE REVISING HCF or HIGHEST COMMON FACTOR

( a factor is a no. that will divide into another  e.g.3 & 4 are factors of 12)

Example 9a

Factors of 28- 1,2,4,7,14,28

Factors of 42- 1,2,3,6,7,14,21,42            CIRCLE WHAT IS COMMON TO BOTH LINES

Common factors- 1,2,7,14             and HCF=14
