Multiplying Fractions

When multiplying with fractions it’s very similar to working out fractions of amounts.

When you see ¼ x 20 the x sign means of, so your question is ¼ of 20. Remember to do this you need to divide by the bottom and times by the top.

20 ÷ 4 = 5

5 x 1 = 5

So ¼ x 20 = 5

When you are working with larger numbers you need to work it out slightly differently.

If you had 2/6 of 54 you would need to convert 54 into a fraction – at the moment you have 54 whole ones so the fraction becomes 54/1.

Now you have 2/6 x 54/1. This is now a simple multiply the numerators and multiply the denominators. So 2 x 54 = 108 and 6x1 = 6

To be able to convert this into a mixed number you need to carry out a division

108 ÷ 6.

You all know how to do short division using bus stop so you can do this and write your remainders as a fraction.

In this example you don’t have any remainders so your answer would just be 18.

If you had to find 3/5 x 136

3/5 x 136/1

So 3 x 136 = 408

And 5 x 1 = 5

This would give you a fraction of 408/5

Remember to convert mixed numbers to improper fractions then work out your multiplication as above.

When you are asked to find missing digits from the question you need to work it backwards.

So if you had 6/8 x ___ = 12

So 12 ÷ 6 = 2 then 2 x 8 = 16

16 would be your missing number.

Quiet Reading Time – Bug Club

Find a comfortable spot for your reading or you may want to find an unusual place for a change. Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.

Make sure you have your reading record signed by an adult at home to show that you have kept up your reading and send over a picture on Class Dojo, this will earn you more dojos.

English- Comprehension

Comprehension Book One (the one with the train on) – Pages 28 and 29 – Wolves in the UK

Comprehension Book One (the one with Stonehenge on- if you have this one) – Pages 10 and 11 – Let’s get growing.

The first part of the lesson will be online to share a guided text about the Mayan writing and maths systems they used, this document is attached below. If you want to print it to be able to follow it you can but if you don’t have this option it will be shared on the screen so you can see it.

History

Mayan Number System

Today we are going to be looking at the Maya number system. Their number system is quite different to the one we use, the Maya used symbols instead of numbers. We will be looking at what the symbols represent, what their values are and how the system works.

Read through the presentation where you will discover what symbols were used, you will see a Maya number list, shown how the system works and how to work out larger numbers.

I have attached the presentation and the worksheet, have fun.

Art

The Maya made many different masks. Some were delicate mosaics made out of jade, some were created to represent gods, some showed faces of snakes and other animals. I have attached some examples of face masks you might want to use for your art work today. You need to either use one of these templates or draw one of them and create a mosaic using the design.

Think about the colours that the Maya would have used for these face masks.
