Cross Multiplying

Hi everybody,

Here is an example of the cross multiplying strategy.

Today I found out how to work out if a fraction is bigger then another by using THE CROSS MULTIPLYING STRATEGY. I discovered that it was easy because all you need to do is multiply the top number of the first fraction by the bottom number of the second fraction, then you do it the other way around. Now I know that working out the bigger fraction isn’t so hard to do all you need to do is the cross multiplying strategy and then it is all simple to you. Did you think it was hard? Was it fun?  I thought it was a lot of fun, I hope you try it home or school to,

Divide

Hi everyone,

This week in Maths we started division algorithms. Working out algorithms are really simple all you have to do is divide the number at the front by the first number in the box then if that doesn’t work if  you divide your number by the two numbers at the front if it has two, three or more digits  then by the next number etc… If that didn’t make sense to you here is an example of how to work out an algorithm.

Algorithms are fun, once you know how to do them they are easy.

What did you think of the division algorithms?

Do you find them easy?

Area and Perimeter Art

Hi everybody,

File_000 (1)
Here is a picture of me artwork.

Today for maths we did an art piece where we used our knowledge of AREA and PERIMETER. First we had to draw 3 rectangles, the 3 rectangles area and perimeter had to be between a certain amount of centimeters.  After we had to draw the three different rectangles on colored pieces of paper then cut them out and stick them on to a black piece of paper. I really liked this task because it was a mixture of two of my favourite subjects. Did you like this task?
