Home Learning – 27.4.20

Good morning and happy Monday!

I am feeling fresh from a relaxing weekend and ready to start a new week full of positive thinking! I have found making a to-do list has really helped me to organise my time – I even put small tasks such as ‘make the bed,’ ‘daily exercise’ on my list so that I feel like I have made accomplishments each day.

Remember to keep in touch with what you have been upto!

Here are your tasks for today:

Maths:

This week we are looking at rounding decimal numbers to the nearest whole number and then later to different decimal places.

Watch this video if you need reminding how to do this:

Bitesize – How to round decimal numbers

To practice your learning have a look at the following questions:

Challenge 1
Challenge 2
Challenge 3

Ext: Round the Dice Decimals

There are three dice, each of them with faces labelled from 1 to 6.
When the dice are rolled they can be combined in six different ways to make a number less than 10 with two decimal places.

For example, if I roll a 2, a 3 and a 6, I can combine them to make 2.36, 2.63, 3.26, 3.62, 6.23 or 6.32.

Now round each of these numbers to the nearest whole number:
2.36 rounds to 2, 2.63 rounds to 3, 3.26 rounds to 3, 3.62 rounds to 4, 6.23 rounds to 6 and 6.32 rounds to 6.

Repeat for other rolls of the dice.

Can each of the six numbers round to the same whole number?
Can each of the six numbers round to a different whole number?

If you do not have any dice at home you can find some interactively on this website:
