6R 4/5/20 Maths (Introducing Angles)

The next few weeks of maths are to prepare you for secondary school Geometry (Shape & Measure).
Today we will begin with recapping your prior knowledge of angels and linking it with real life examples from Geography and Time knowledge.

Miss Ahmed’s maths group: Bronze
Everybody else Silver and Gold please.

BRONZE (Q1-3)
Your first task is to match the first four angles to the diagrams and the amount of right angles. Obviously, we can’t draw on this blog so please share you answer as the letter, number and symbol you think match
E.G. A=4=3 (Incorrect answer, correct presentation)

SILVER (Q4-6)
Here you need to apply your knowledge of angles to redraw and complete the sentences. Please send a photo of your completed work (COMPULSORY)

GOLD (Q7-8)
Explain your answers using mathematical and reasoning vocabulary.

There are far too many children saying ‘I done it’ – this comment means nothing unless a photo of your work has been sent to the year 6 email. (Thank you to the few who are currently doing this)
Every child in Year Six has access to a phone or tablets and every parent has an email address. Therefore we will only accept your work via email
or in full sentences in the comment boxes below.
Remember we’re aiming to prepare you for Secondary School!

    • Mustafa well done for trying to complete the challenge. Remember you must use mathematical vocabulary to explain your answer in detail. Look at your response for question 2 again please.

    • Good answers:

      Have a go at the following:

      There are 3 angles around a point. The first angle is 54 degrees and the other is 68 degrees. What is the missing angle?

  4. Silver:

    1.Huan is facing north.He turns half a turn.
    What direction is he facing now?
    He is facing south.

    B.Whitney is facing east.
    She turns 180°.
    What direction is she facing now.
    She is facing west.

    C.Alex is facing west.
    She turns a quarter turn clockwise.
    What direction is she facing.
    She is facing north.

    D.Amir is facing west.
    He turns a quarter turn clockwise.
    What direction is he facing now?
    He is facing south.

    Kim is facing south.
    What angle does she need to turn through to face east.

    90° or 270°

    Dexter is facing north-east.
    He turns half a tur .
    What direction is he facing now?
    He is facing south-west.

    Esther is facing south-west.
    She turns 270° anti clockwise.
    What direction is she facing now.
    She is facing north

    Mo is facing south-west.
    He turns and he is still facing south-west.
    How many degrees did he turn.
    He turned 360°

    1/2 of a full turn=180°
    1/4 of a full turn=90°
    3/4 of a full turn=270°
    1 1/4 turns=450°
    5 3/4 turns=2070

    Gold:
    Eva turned 840°.I know this because two turns is 720 degrees and one third of a turn is 120 degrees so I added it together to get a total of 840 degrees.

    The minute hand turned 22.5 degrees.

    • Gold:

      1.) Eva turned through 840 degrees. This is because a full turn is 360 degrees. Eva said she had done 2 turns which means she turned 720 degrees as 360 x 2= 720. She also said that she had done a third of a turn. This means she turned 120 degrees. 720 degrees + 120 degrees= 840 degrees.

      2.) The clock turned 30 degrees. This is because the maths lesson was 1 hour long. The clock is a circle which means it has 360 degrees inside it. As there are 12 hours on it you do 360/12 which equals 30. Therefore, it had turned 30 degrees.
