Ratio Rumble is a great game - also available free at the Apple App Store!
We will look at multi-step word problems (they are usually worth 2 marks on the tests). We will have to do 2 operations to get the answer. Often they are related to money and other real-life situations.
Try being a shopkeeper here!
For averages, you need to know these key words: mode (most), median (middle number), mean (average) and range (the difference between the highest and lowest number).
Watch the video below - Is it better or worse than Mrs Henderson and me singing for you?

Last week, we actually gave out 3 class awards:
Cailen and Curtis both achieved more than 20000 points on Mathletics, whilst Lara won the class design for Nick Sharratt's pants (see the previous post). Brilliant effort!
In addition, most of the class got their first Bronze certificate in Mathletics! Well done - keep practising everyone!
After 2 days with Mathletics, our class are currently 16th in the UK - a brilliant achievement. Don't believe me? Here's the proof!
Keep practising; remember the gold bars mean you have mastered a topic. If it gets tricky, just ask and we will go through it in class.
We'll profile some of our high scorers in the coming days too!
Next week, we will be reviewing the words we use to describe numbers:
