In Maths we have been learning to use a range of multiplicative strategies when operating with whole numbers.


The strategies we have been learning are:

- Estimate the reasonableness of large problems like 1 788 – 891. Could 497 be right?
- Use multiplication to solve addition and subtraction problems eg.
  64 – 48 = as (8 x 8) – (6 x 8) = 2 x 8= 16
- Use doubling / halving, trebling/ thirding and adjusting to solve multiplication problems,
 eg.  12 x 50 solved as 4 x 150= 600
- Use an algorithm to solve multiplication problems.
- Solve problems using simple cube numbers .
- Use an algorithm to solve division problems.
- Use standard written form of addition.

Here is a link to my Multiplicative Strategies Assessment which shows that I know why and how I use particular strategies. This doc also has screenshots to show which IXL activities I have completed as part of my learning. Multiplicative strategies Assessment



My next step in my Maths Learning is……I understand addition and subtraction of fractions, decimals, and integers Number.

WALT: I can recognize and understand the features and structures of a wide variety of text types and forms.

WALT: I can recognize and understand the features and structures of a wide variety of text types and forms.

The text types that we studied were:
Poems.
Stories/ narratives.
Articles
Websites

Each text type has different structures and features because: All of the texts were different and they were written by different people, and different people would have different ideas.


Two text types that I have enjoyed learning about are        Features of websites          and       Articles.
