If it is poured equally into 8 glasses, how much is in each glass? This week we were learning how to measure angles around a point. We found this quite easy but others were hard, like when we had to find out two angles. This is how we worked it out. Firstly, we would have to work out how many degrees the whole shape actually was. For example, a full circle is 360°, and if one angle was 148° then you would do 360148= 212. So the other section would be 212°. That’s how you find out one measurement.
This is how we find two measurements. Firstly we need to find out how many degrees the whole shape is. Similar to finding out one section, but if you have a right angle in the shape then it is 90° so you know one section now. Example: If you have 90° and 49° then you need to add them two up which makes 139° then you do 360°139°=221°, then you have the answer. On Wednesday we had to draw given angles. We had to use a protractor this is how you use a protractor. Firstly you need line up the middle of the protractor on to the point of the angle but if the angle is on the right side then you use the left side of the protractor but if the angle is on the left then you use the right side of the protractor. Then you would line up where the end of the angle is then you will get the answer. By S.A and L.P Can you solve this problem?

What fraction of his journey has he completed? What fraction of his journey does he have left? This week, we have been studying Geometry. If you were guessing, this means to study lines, angles, surfaces and solids. Geometry is one of our class favourites (but not Mr N ‘s because of trying to teach protractors – HARD!) He said “It is not too hard because of any mathematical decisions, but the use of fingers and our eyesight.” After trying it out, we knew where Mr N was coming from!
We did the Entry Quiz on Monday and we did ok but as always it does not matter because as Mr N told us it is our first try. We have been mostly looking at angles and using protractors – Mr N ‘s worst nightmare! – but luckily, we understood them quite well! On Tuesday we were finding out the meaning of acute – smaller than 90 degrees – obtuse – larger than 90 degrees but smaller than 180 degrees – right angle – which is 90 degrees and reflex – larger than 180 degrees. We were given angles to identify, using these measurements in our book. Wednesday, we used protractors to measure some angles and rather enjoyed using them. Some of us struggled with this but we were able to carry on with using them on Thursday with measuring angles on a straight line (basically with more than one angle to measure) and we soon all got the hang of it. On Friday, we did a mental maths quiz and most of us improved our score. We have really enjoyed our week and can’t wait to carry on! Thankyou! By I.L.W & C.M Can you solve this problem?
