Mrs Watson Maths
Each week, you will have two sessions on mymaths, 2 fluency or problem-solving tasks and one y6 arithmetic paper which should be straightforward but will keep your brains going. Please do not print out the sheets – just write your answers into your red homework book or any paper you can find at home. You should find the answers attached so that you can self-mark.
MONDAY - mymaths – reverse percentages and percentage change
TUESDAY - reverse percentage word problems – remember the bar model!!
We did this last Wednesday.
e.g. a camera is reduced by 5%. The sale price is £15.20. What was the original price?
95% = 15.20
15.20 ÷95 x 100 = 15.20 ÷0.95
a clock’s price has increased by 40% to £112. What did it cost originally?
140% = £112
1% = ?
100% = ?
112 ÷140 x 100 = 112 ÷1.4
WARNING! Answers below – no cheating!
WEDNESDAY - mymaths – negative numbers
