Ms O’Shaughnessy’s Maths Group,Sixth Class work, 8th-12th June
I hope you enjoyed your “week off” and had fun on your virtual school tours. I can’t believe that you are in the last month of Sixth class already. Here is some work to keep you going over the next week if you have some time on your hands. Remember, you can upload it to Seesaw if you like and ask me any questions about it. I’ll also add some optional extras during the week. Don’t forget to put my name on any work that you upload.
This week, we are going to look at Averages:
Ex: Jack decided to re-organise his bookcase so that there was the same number of books on each shelf. There were 10 books on the first shelf, 5 on the second, 13 on the third and 4 on the fourth shelf. How can he re-organise them so that there are the same number of books on each shelf?
So: To calculate the average, we add the values and divide by the number of them.
Solve these: For each of the bookcases below, work out the missing number. You can draw a diagram to help you if you need to:
