This week I would like you to focus on BODMAS (or BIDMAS).
Follow the link below to BBC Bitesize and watch both of the videos.
Complete Activity 1 and 2 on the BBC Bitesize page.
Use the PowerPoint below and watch the video to remind you of the Order of Operations.
Complete the reasoning and problem solving BODMAS tasks that have been assigned to you on Mathletics.
You will find these in the EXPLORE link.
Remember; if you have a problem, you can check with me through the 'Ask the Teacher' link
Thursday (choose either the Code Breaker task or the BODMAS Challenge!)
Choose two of the Code Breaker sheets to complete! (1 = easier 4 = harder)
Your challenge is to make the numbers from 2 to 20 with the digits:
2, 3, 4 and 5
You can use any mathematical operations (+, -, X, ÷, brackets and indices).
You must use all four digits once each in each calculation.
You must follow the BODMAS rule.
2 = 4 x 3 – 5 x 2
20 = 3 x 5 + √25
