01.06.20 - Today, I would like you to practise calculating the mean.This is when you add up all the given numbers and then divide by how many numbers there are. Just before half term, you were introduced to this in your Friday maths mystery. So, for example, given the numbers 8, 16, 11, 9, and 3, the mean would be 9.4 because the total of the numbers is 47 and 47 divided by 5 is 9.4. In today's work, your mean answers will sometimes be whole numbers and sometimes decimals, so take care and read the instructions carefully. I would like both orange and yellow groups to complete pages 1 and 2 of the worksheets below, but you can complete page 3 as well if you are feeling confident and would like an extra challenge. The answers are provided on the final page for you to check your work when you have finished.
02.06.20 - Today, I would like you to complete the worksheets in the attachment below on median, mode, mean and range. They are all terms used in connection with statistics. Read the instructions on the first page carefully, as they explain the meanings of the terms in case you need to refresh your memories. The answers are included on the final page so that you can check your understanding.
03.06.20 /04.06.20 - Today and tomorrow, I would like you to focus again on the mean, but this time you are also going to learn how to calculate a missing value in set of data when the mean is provided. There is a formula for calculating this, which is explained in the presentation. Since the presentation is quite long and includes several questions for you to work on, I suggest that you complete this today and move onto the activity sheets tomorrow. Yellow group should complete the sheets with 1 and 2 stars in the top left hand corner. Orange group should scroll down to and complete the sheets with 2 and 3 stars in the top left hand corner. The answers are provided for both sets of work, so please check your understanding once you have finished your tasks. Try your best!
05.06.20 - Welcome back to Maths Mystery Friday. Today, I would like you to solve The Mystery of the Missing Umpire. The famous Wimbledon tennis tournament usually starts in June, so this is a good time for solving a tennis mystery. Also, this pack includes work on angles and finding the mean, which are both topics we have covered recently. Look back at your work on angles to remind yourself about opposite angles and what angles in a triangle, or on a straight line, add up to. This will help you. First, open and read the instruction document. After that, you can work your way through the clues. The answers are provided separately, but try to solve the mystery before you look. Go for it! The fate of the tennis tournament is resting upon your shoulders!
