Maths – Division

Dear Parents,

I am aware that some of you have queries about division. The only exercise that has some sort of division is the following:

2/6  of 24 =

I know they have already covered this with previous teachers however some students still find difficulty on how to work it. I have given them this explanation and sharing it with you to help them practice at home. (Mind you, you can use any method you like, this is just a helping hand for the ones who can’t seem to get it.

Explanation:

So, first we draw a boat.

/________

The denominator (in this case the 6) is the captain of the boat so he sits in front.

6/________

The passengers sit inside the boat.

6/___24____

Using their tables they figure out that that 4 is the answer.

They go back to the equation. Cross of the 6 and cross off the 24 and write 4.

The of changes into X and they work out a normal multiplication 2 X 4 = 8

They seem to have understood the method and enjoy creating the boat idea so feel free to use this. At this stage, we shall only use division here this year. No other exercises will have any division, long division or long multiplication.

Regards

Maths – Junior 4

Dear Parents,

It has been brought to my attention that some of the extra work papers posted online have long multiplication. Please ignore these as the student won’t be having long multiplication this year. Some handouts are a mixture of different topics so please ignore anything that is not on the study list.

Please feel free to contact me should you need any more clarifications.

Regards

Maths – Junior 4s

Dear Parents,

I trust that this post finds you well. I am sure you are at that stage were anxiety and stress levels are at their peak because of your child/children exams approaching. Don’t stress… a little bit of revision everyday will surely help your little ones. Exams are not the end of the world either, their progress throughout the year is much more important. However, having said that, I’m sure you’ll need some extra handouts and revision sheets to help them revise. I am attaching a number of resources you might find handy.

Red Folder – Maths – Junior 4s

Related image

Dear Parents,

I have sent the thick red folder home. This is to be kept at home and to be replace with a button A4 folder. The current folder is quite heavy for them to carry everyday so I suggest that this is left at home to study and revise. In the meantime the red folder can be placed in the bag for any handouts given during the last couple of weeks before exams. I suggest to remove any papers corrected and place them in the red think folder at home to have everything together.

Thank you for your kind attention,

Ms. Edwina
