Maths Mate: Term 3: Sheet 3

Predict: I predict this is going to be about how many players there are in the team.

Read: A number of cricketers are standing in a circle. They are evenaly spaced and the second cricketer is directly opposite the sixth player. How many cricketers are there altogether.

Clarify: none

The Big Question: How many cricket players are there.

Mathematicians Toolbox: Problem Solving.

Solve: I drew a clock face and put 2 direct opposite 6 and figured it out and it was 8.

Summary: This the exat same from the last one but a different answer.

Maths Mate: Term 3: Sheet 2

Predict: I predict this is going to be about how many hockey players there are in the team.

Read: A team of hockey players are standing in a circle. They are evenaly spaced and the forth player is directly oposite the ninth player. How many hockey players are there.

Clarify: none.

The Big Question: How many players are there.

Mathematicians Toolbox: Problem Solving.

Solve: first I drew a clock face and figered it out.

Summary: This was like the last and it was solved in a simular way.

Maths Mate: Term 3: Sheet 1: Q22

Predict: I predict this is going to be about finding out who’s oposite 3.

Read: Rugby players numbered 1 to 12 are standing in a circle in numerical order. They  are evenly spaced. What number does the player opposite number 3 wear.

Clarify: none

The Big Question: Who’s oposite 3.

Mathematicians Toolbox: Problem Solving

Solve: first drew a clock face and put three down on the left hand side and put 1 and 12 directly next to each over, then I realised it must a clock face when you draw a circle so 9 is opisite 3.

Summary: this was about useing diagrams to this out.

Maths Mate Problem Steps

Predict: What sort of maths problem do you think it is.

Read: Write the Question.

Clarify: Write the meaning of words of concepts.

The Big Question: What does the question mean? What do you hope to fined out?

Mathematicians Toolbox: Write which one you used.

Solve: How did you it? Write the steps.

Summary: Summarise what process used and how you did it.

Maths Mate: Term 2: Sheet 8: Q22

Predict: I predict this is going to be about using 2 of the 3 signs to make the answer.

Read: Place a +,- or * sign in each box to make the equation correct?

Clarify: No phrases.

The Big Question: What signs go in the boxes?

Mathematicians Toolbox: Guess, Check and Improve.

Solve: First I fingered out that 6*8=48 so I put the times sign down and then I put minus sing down because 48-2=46 which is the answer.

Summary: I used my skills and I worked it out in the best way I could.

Maths Mate: Term 2: Sheet 7: Q23

Predict: I predict this is going to be about seeing how many kilos there are.

Read: What is the weight of two bricks if four and a half bricks weigh 9kg?

Clarify: No phrases to clarify.

The Big Question: What is the weight of two bricks?

Mathematicians Toolbox: Problem Solving.

Solve: First I turn 4 and a half bricks into 4 bricks which is now 8kg and i halved to 2 brick at 4kg and that’s the answer.

Summary: This one was pretty easy but still a bit of a challenge, I used my skills that I learnt and used them well

Maths Mate: Term 2: Sheet 5: Q23

Predict: I predict this is going to be about trying to solve out how kilos there are in the bricks.

Read: What is the weight of seven bricks if three and a half bricks weigh seven kilos?

Clarify I had no phrases to clarify.

The Big Question: How many kilos are in seven bricks?

Mathematicians Toolbox: Try all possibilities

Solve: So I thorght if three and half is half of seven I could just double it and I came up with 14kg.

Summary: So I used the problem solving strategies to solve this on out in great ways.

Maths Mate: Term 2: Sheet 4: Q22

Predict: I predict this is going to be about how many numbers add up to 3 by counting by 3.

Read: How many numbers between 20 and 31 are divisible by 3?

Clarify: I had no phrases to clarify.

The Big Question: How numbers are divisible by 3?

Mathematicians Toolbox: Write an equation

Solve: I counted by 3 to 21 then I knew I had to start counting how many numbers there where 21,24,27 and 30 so there where 4 numbers divisible by 3.

Summary: So I used me problem solving strategies to this one out and I used them well.

 

Maths Mate: Term 2: Sheet 3

Predict: I predict this is going to be about making all the numbers add up to 18.

Read: Fill the digits 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9 so that that the sum on each of the six straight lines is 18.

Clarify: I had no phrases to clarify.

Big Question: The Big Question was to make each line equal 18.

Mathematicians Toolbox: Try a simpler problem

Solve: The 8 and 3 equaled 11 so there had to a 7  to equal it and the 8 and 1 equaled 9 so there had to a 9. The next thing I did was add the 2 to the 7 and 9 because that equaled it. The next thing was I put the 6 at the top and put 5 on the left and the 4 on the right.

`Summary: So I solved it using my problem solving skills I learnt.
