__Notes to assist with the questions and that…;-)__

__Page 1:__

Questions 1 and 2 are all about place value. Remember a digit in the first column after the decimal point is in the ‘tenths’ column, so 0.2 is 2/10 = 1/5 etc

Digits in the first two columns after the d.p. are in the ‘hundredths’ column, so 0.23 = 23/100 etc

Then there are a couple of Qs on reading scales (peasy!), and a couple about adding and taking with decimals (peasy too!)

__Page 2:__

Q7 is just sixteen words @ 18p a word, Q8 is just ‘timesing’ and dividing, and Q9 just using a calculator…

__Page 3: (the longest, toughest page)__

Q10a – take the £5 off at the beginning, then times your Guilders and pounds

Q10b – do your division and take the £5 off at the end ;-)

Q11 is just rounding – for 2 sig. fig. remember to approach the number from the left, and when you have reached 2 digits in (after the first non-zero digit), round to that column

Q12 we have done something like before, and this is an easy one.

To convert from fractions to decimals, try to find equivalent fractions that are in tenths /10s or hundredths /100s etc. That makes writing them as decimals easy. From decimals to fractions, remember to start out with your /10s or /100s and then cancel down as best you can ;-)

Percentages are just fractions out of a hundred, or can be written as decimals equally simply.

Q13 – a couple of ‘clock-times’ to be added and a simple decimal division – no calc.s please

__Page 4:__

Q14 is just estimating – remember your 1 sig. fig rounding… and Q15 is just putting the brackets in the correct place on your calculator, to make it do the bits in the right way. Simples.

Remember to send your work to cturfrey1@meritpru-stoke.org.uk. Cheers. Byeeeeee.

Notes for the week’s work: 10 D1 – 10 D3

Hi folks; welcome back ;-)

So we’re nearing the end of the current topic, and there’s some easy recap work for you (D1, D2) and then some work that may extend you a little (D3: only really pushing level 4-5, so not too horrendous).

Do the sheets in order:

D1): Just basic factors, multiples, and square numbers. Easy peasy.

D2): Just square-roots (the opposite or ‘inverse’ of squaring) and some questions where you list factors in pairs [extremely useful for the following sheet…]

D3)i: explanation of SURDS, and basic Rule 1 questions

ii: Rule 2 questions {opposite to Rule 1}. Here the last work on sheet D2 comes in extremely useful, so make sure you have that to hand ;-)))

iii): Rule 3 questions [which are probably easier than Rule 2 t.b.h.]

You should find sheets D1 and D2 very easy and straight forward.

You may struggle with D3 – or parts of it – certainly as I’ve just mentioned, Rule 3 and Rule 1 work is relatively straight forward; whereas Rule 2 work is a little trickier; requires a bit more thought.

Try it all though, and do what you can.

As ever, screenshot what you’ve done (remember to make it clear and neat as possible for my old, tired eyes, and the right way round helps too ;-)))) Send all work to: cturfrey1@meritpru-stoke.org.uk

Thanks dudes!
