This week was particularly exciting. In the main, we were learning about fractions. From improper fractions to mixed numbers, we have been learning about how to use a different types of fractions. It was an enjoyable week and we learnt many facts with Mr N.
At the beginning of the week, we learnt about equivalent fractions and how to find them. For example, 2/4 is equivalent to ½. This, as we found out, would help us later in the week. As well as showing the different fractions, we showed the operations to find the answer. E.G. When you multiply both denominator and numerator of ½ is multiplied by two it becomes 2/4 (which are equivalent). We then went on to add and subtract mixed and improper fractions. So we could get a question like 1 and 2/3 + 11/6 and we would have to find the common denominator and then find the answer. As Mr N understood that as we got older, we became more mature and capable of making our own decisions to know which method is best us as an individual. Therefore, we were given the option of converting to either mixed or improper fractions. Although we were given this choice, before we started each piece of work, Mr N would show us both ways so were sure of what to do. As a whole, this week was such an enjoyable week where we found out many important and beneficial facts. By TS and AB Can you solve this problem?

How much does he have left in the bottle by the end of the second week? Hi, we are two of Mr N’s maths pupils. Last week we were studying factors, prime numbers and composite numbers. To start us off, we found factors of different numbers such as:
60 1 times 60 2 times 30 3 times 20 Altogether there are 12 factors. 4 times 15 5 times 12 6 times 10 Then we found the common factors (factors that are the same between two numbers) Afterwards we were learning about prime and composite numbers.If you don’t know what a prime number is it is a number which has only two factors and a composite number is when it has more than two factors. Here are some prime numbers to 10; 2,3,5,7. Can you solve this problem?
