Ms O’Shaughnessy’s Maths group:
This work is optional so only do it if you have time on your hands. If you can’t do any part of it, do not stress, just do your best! I am sticking to the same type of routine this week so hopefully you will be familiar with the games.
a. How quickly can you say the multiples for each Table? Ex. 22.214.171.124 etc. Time yourself. Can you improve on your time each day? Practice saying them and writing them down
.•b. Can you say the multiples backwards with and without a multiplication square/ table book? Again, time yourself, can you improve on your time? Practice saying and writing them.
c. Multiplication tennis-if you can find someone in your house to play with, play multiplication tennis. Use a table book or your homework journal or write out the multiples to help you. Start on a particular multiple and “bat” the numbers forwards and back: Ex: Person A says “25”, B says “30”, A says “35” etc. Change the number that you start on. For an extra challenge, ask person B to say the multiple that comes before Ex: A says 40, B says 35.
d. Write out the multiples for the x5 and x6 tables. What is the biggest 3 digit number you can make? __ _ _. What is the smallest 3 digit number you can make?
Make these numbers in as many different ways as possible. Do one each day. Try and use at least 3 of the operations-addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Ex: 35= 5 x 7, 30 +5, 40-5 etc.
