The post Year 4 reasoning about rounding appeared first on URBrainy.

]]>We have a great many reasoning maths worksheets in Year 4 and have just published a further set on rounding. Rather than just asking for a particular number to round, the questions give rise to several possible answers. For example:

I have two different numbers.

They both round to 30 when rounded to the nearest 10.

The sum of the two numbers is 59.

Find all the possible combinations of two numbers that I could have.

To fully answer this question children must show a good understanding or rounding to the nearest whole 10 and be able to work in a systematic way.

]]>Some fun and challenging work for Year 4 children working with mixed units. Each line has to add up to the same total, but the units of measurement are mixed; they might be given in kilograms and grams or litres and millilitres. The key here is to be able to add these mixed units ( e.g. 0.6 kg + 700 g) either converting all to kilograms or all to grams.

]]>We continue our theme of ‘real life’ problem solving with two new sets of money worksheets for Year 4. These involve adding six amounts of money together to see how much a day’s shopping will cost. One is based around the beach and the other on garden centre products. These would be excellent activities on the whiteboard, discussing which order would be best to add up the items.

]]>Would you like to introduce algebra in a fun, jolly way? If so, take a look at our latest Year 4 pages on finding the missing values. Different ‘ratty characters’ have values which buy ambien need to be worked out by dividing and then combining with other values to find the final solution. (Replace the rat image with an x or y and it magically becomes algebra!)

]]>Allowing children to try and explain what is happening is a crucial part of learning and we have just published an interesting addition problem which involves children trying to explain ‘multiple exchanges’. This happens in an addition question where the ones add up to ten and the tens add up to one hundred and the hundreds add up to one thousand – forming a sequence of multiple exchanges. If children can understand what is happening then it is a sure sign that they have a good grasp of addition.

]]>Reasoning in Mathematics is the in-phrase at the moment and we have just published some great resources for Year 4 children. These concentrate on reasoning about number and working with thousands. When first encountering a new problem children need to make use of the knowledge ambien no prescription they already have to help solve the problem. Our latest published set needs knowledge of rounding, whilst the working with thousands pages require logical thinking and working in a systematic way in order to reach a full answer.

]]>The post Partitioning in Year 4 appeared first on URBrainy.

]]>Partitioning numbers is an important part of the new maths curriculum. In Year 4 children will be expected to partition numbers in the thousands into thousands, hundreds, tens and ones.

For example: 4 560 can be written as 456 tens; 45 hundreds and 6 tens; 4 thousands and 56 tens and so on.

Our latest ambien no prescription review sets of worksheets take a close look at partitioning and provide plenty of excellent practice.

]]>Once children have understood the formal written methods of calculating they still need plenty of practice in order to work quickly and accurately. Our latest sets of worksheets for Year 4 are ideal for this, buy ambien next day keeping the numbers reasonably small and providing squared paper to work on. There are, of course, many more pages in our separate Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division categories.

]]>Our latest sets of addition worksheets for Year 4 really do show the relationship between addition and subtraction. We have two sets where the missing number in an addition sentence has to be found, which requires either subtraction or ‘counting on’. The third and fourth sets have missing digits rather than missing whole numbers, and are the sort of problems that the teaching for mastery approach suggests using.

]]>Whilst we are all used to the traditional way of learning times tables it is important to be able to rapidly adapt the known information to solve number problems. For example, children may learn that 7 x 6 = 42 but they should be just as quick in finding 42 ÷ 7 = ?

We have just published two sets of worksheets which concentrate on these ‘division tables’ and are an excellent test of how well children know the times tables.
