Fifty four maths statements to be investigated. Great to get children talking about Maths.
The second of our Maths Investigation packs contain fifty four maths statements to be investigated and is great for the 'using and applying' area of maths and for evidencing on APP grids.
For each statement the children need to explain whether the statement is:
The statements vary in difficulty meaning that everyone in the class can participate. You may want, for example, to have different groups of children working on different investigations. Statements to be investigated include
Multiplying a 3 digit number by a 2 digit number gives you a 6 digit answer.
Any number multiplied by 0.5 will be half of itself.
If you fold a square in half you get two triangles.
The sum of two consecutive triangular numbers is a square number.
On each A4 sheet there are two maths statements and the pack also includes an A4 instruction page with possible extension activities. Ideally these cards would be printed and laminated meaning that they can be used over and over again. The investigations are aimed at children in years 5/6 but children in years 3 and 4 would be able to access many of the statements. Each card is decorated with a playful Clipart image thanks to our license with Clipart.com.
