Ms O’Shaughnessy’s Maths group:
Hi girls, I hope you are all well and enjoying the good weather. Hopefully it will last so that you can get out and about for Active School’s Week this week. In the meantime, if you are stuck for something to do, you can try some, or all of this work! Well done to everyone who uploaded some of their work on Seesaw, it’s great to see it and to be able to respond to it. If you have any questions about this week’s work, you can ask me on Seesaw and I will help you out:
Last week we focused on calculating the Selling Price after a profit or loss had been made. This week, we are going to look at VAT.
Learning objective: We are learning how to calculate VAT:
Do you remember what VAT stands for? That’s right; it is short for Value Added Tax, a special type of government tax added to the prices of some goods and services. VAT is calculated as a percentage (called the VAT rate) of the original amount due for the goods or services. Ireland’s standard VAT rate is currently 23%.
Often the VAT will already be included in the cost of an item or service; however you may sometimes have to add it on.
Ex: Subtotal: €160, VAT at 9%. €160=100%, 1%= €1.60, 9%= €1.60 x 9= €14.40. Therefore total is, €160 + €14.40= €174.40
Note: You may also choose to do it using the decimal method: 100%+9%=109%=1.09. €160 x 1.09= €174.40
Now try these: Below is the subtotal (add VAT at 9%)
Now try these: Calculate the total bill for each of these subtotals if they exclude VAT at 13.5%. You may use a calculator if you wish. You may find the decimal method easier to use for this exercise. Round your answers to the nearest euro. See the example above.
Maths language revision:
Can you explain the following terms? If not, look them up. You might like to add them to a “dictionary” (back of your copy, A4 page etc). Be as specific as you can when giving your definition.
An apartment block has 100 apartments.
Leah delivered a leaflet to every second apartment (numbers 2, 4, 6 etc.).
Flora delivered flowers to every third apartment (numbers 3, 6, 9 etc.).
Pat delivered pizza to every fifth apartment (numbers 5, 10, 15 etc.)
How are you getting on with the puzzle books? Continue choosing a challenge each day if you can.
Challenge of the week (only if you have time on your hands, it’s just to stretch your brains!): Visit the website www.dcbeagle.com/index.html. You can also access it via the Maths Ireland website at www.mathsweek.ie
Choose one activity daily from one of the puzzle books. Book 6 is for age 11+ but you may prefer to start with Book 5 or 4 as they are quite tricky. Record your rough-work. You might like to take a picture of your work and upload it to your Seesaw account.
Look out on Seesaw for another challenge!
Ms O’Shaughnessy’s English group:
If you are in my English group, have a look at these activities. Do the activities that apply to you. Not all of the suggestions will apply to each girl that comes to the group so if it doesn’t make sense to you, don’t worry! I put an activity up on Seesaw last week which you might like to look at if you get a chance. Also, if you would like to upload any of the work you have done for my group, I’d love to see it.
