Morning 4 White I hope you are all well and working hard. It would be nice to see some more children commenting on blogs please.

For Maths today we are looking at how to write halves and quarters as decimals. Follow the link below and listen carefully to the video. Please make sure you click on the correct videos.

Bronze: In your homework books complete the statements below.

Silver: Answer the following below on the blog page please.

Gold:

Bronze

50 squares are shaded.

50 squares not shaded.

50/100 =shaded.

50/100 =not shaded.

.5 as a decimal.

2.

a)

25 small squares.

25/100

.25

b)

75 small squares

75/100

.75

Bronze:

1)I have done this on a piece of paper and will send it on Padlet where Miss Philpotts can see it.

Silver:

1)True because both of them show 25/100 which is equivalent to 1/4.

This helps Annie because she know what 1/2 and 1/4 is so if she adds them up her total is 3/4 which is equivalent to 0.75.

Gold:

A)25/100=.25

B)75/100=3/4

C)1/4=0.25

D)3/4=0.75

E)25/100=.25

F)3/4=75/100

G)0.5=1/2

H)50=1/2

Great Aamina! How would we represent 1/5 as a decimal?

Well done for sharing on the padlet page, I love to see how everybody is getting on at home! We need lots more children to visit it!

1out of 4 equal groups =25 small squares.

1 out of 4 equal groups = 25 /100

Good Alina! how do you know that silver is true?

I have printed and will email it to you.

Received- good work Rajbir!

Have another look at bronze Bijan, please watch the video to help you.

1/2 = 50/100 = 5/10 We use the number of hundredths to help us write the decimal which is 0.50 0r 0.5.

How would we write 1/4 = 25/100 as a decimal?

I have completed this in my homework book

Good Adeena, I got your mum’s email, thank you! Just check:

What is 1/2 as a decimal?

What is 1/4 as a decimal?

Challenge: How could we represent 1/5 as a decimal?

Hint- convert them into hundredths first.

1/2 as a decimal 0.50

1/4 as a decimal 0.25

1/5 as a decimal 0.20

Super Adeena- you’ve got it!

Good, please complete the rest of bronze and try silver too Bethany.

I have posted my maths and it doesn’t show it on the blog

I would like to know if it has been sent to you

It was lovely to speak with your mummy and daddy today.

The comment was received and approved. Please do not worry if it is not approved immediately (although I hear that you are very eager to know).

Keep on working to the best of your ability!

Bronze

1)0.5 out of 100 squares are shaded.

0.5 out of 100 squares are not shaded.

50/100 = shaded

50/100 = not shaded

1/2 = 50/100 = 5/10 so we write 1/2 as 0.5 decimal place.

2) 1 out of 4 equal groups = 25 small squares

1 out of 4 equal groups = 25/100

1/4 = 25/100 = 0.25

3 out of 4 equal groups = 75 small squares

3 out of 4 equal groups = 75/100

3/4 = 75/100 = 0.75

Silver

1) This statement is false because the first one shows 1 quarter but the other shows 0.25.

2) This helps Annie because she can just add 1/2 and 1/4 together to make 3/4 as a decimal place.

Gold

25/100 = 0.25

25/100 = 1/4

75/100 = 0.75

75/100 = 3/4

0.5 = 1/2

3/4 = 0.75

50/100 = 1/2

Well done Hamaad! How could we represent 2/5 as a decimal?

BRONZE

1] 50 small squares are shaded .

2] 50 small squares are not shaded.

3] 50/100 not shaded and 50 /100 shaded.

4] 1 of 4 equal groups = 25 small squares.

5] 1 of 4 equal groups = 25 /100

6] 1/4 = 25 / 100 = 0.25.

7] 3 out of 4 equal groups = 75 small squares.

8] 3 out of 4 equal groups = 75 /100

9] 3/4 = 75/100 = 0.75.

SILVER

True because both Rekenreks equal 100 in total and a quarter of it gives you 25 and in both of them 25 are left out.

GOLD

1] 25/100 = 0.25

2] 75/100 = 0.75

50/100 not shaded and 50/100 shaded

1 out of 4 equal groups = 0.25

3 out of 4 equal groups = 0.75

True because both have the same amount just different ways

This helps Annie because she can just add them up

Great methodical maths working today Mikolaj!

Great Mikolaj!

Good morning

BRONZE

50 out of 100 small squares are shaded.

50 out of 100 small squares are not shaded.

Half of the small squares are shaded but the rest aren’t

SILVER

True, because they have same amount of bead rows.

This helps her because if she know’s half and quater, she

Should know 3 quarters.

Great work Yahya, I like how you explained your thinking on the silver challenge.

Well done Yahya!

BRONZE

50 small squares are shaded

50 small squares are not shaded

50/100 is not shaded

1 out of 4 equal groups = 25/100

1/4 =25 100= 0.25

3 out of 4 equal groups = 75 small squares

3 out of 4 equal groups= 75/100

Great work Alexis, try the silver challenge too!

Bronze

1.a 50 out of a small squares are shaded .

50 0ut of a small squares are not shaded .

50/100 = shaded .

50 /100 not shaded .

1/2 = 50/100 = 5/10 so we write 1/2 as 2.1 as a decimal .

2.a 1 out of 4 equal groups = 25 small squares .

1 out of 4 equal groups = 25/100

1/4 = 25 / 100 = 0. 4

3 out of equal 4 groups = 65 small squares

3 out of equal 4 groups = 65 /100

3/4 = 65/100 = 0. 4

Have another look at bronze Bolu, please watch the video to help you. 3/4 does not equal 65/100, count the squares on the 100 square carefully.

1/2 = 50/100 = 5/10 We use the number of hundredths to help us write the decimal which is 0.50 0r 0.5.

How would we write 1/4 = 25/100 as a decimal?
