6W-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!

  1. Gold: (Q7)
    The answer is 840, because Eva did 2 1/3 turns, and in 1 whole turn, there are 360 degrees, and she did 2 wholes, so 360×2=720. And 1/3 of 360 is 120, i found this out because i already knew 36 divided by 3 is 12 so i just made my answer x10 bigger. 720+120= 840.

    Gold: (Q8)
    The answer is 360, i know this because the lesson starts at 9am and finishes at 10am, and on a clock, the minute hand turns around the whole clock once in a hour, and in one full turn, there are 360degrees, therefore the answer is 360.

  2. Silver:
    1. He will face East
    2. She will face west
    3. He will face north.
    4. He will face south.
    5. Kim will need to do a 90 degree anti-clockwise turn to get to east.
    6. Dexter will face east.
    7. She will be facing NW.
    8. He has turned 360 degrees.
    9. 1/2=180 degrees.
    10. 1/4=90 degrees.
    11. 3/4= 270 degrees.
    12. 1 1/4= 450 degrees.
    13. 5 3/4=2070degrees

    2. She will face west
    3. He will face north.
    4. He will face south.
    5. Kim will need to do a 90 degree anti-clockwise turn to get to east.
    6. Dexter will face east.
    7. She will be facing NW.
    8. He has turned 360 degrees.
    9. 1/2=180 degrees.
    10. 1/4=90 degrees.
    11. 3/4= 270 degrees.
    12. 1 1/4= 450 degrees.
    13. 5 3/4=2070degrees.

    • I know Eva did 820 degrees because the fraction is 2 and 1/3. 1 = 360 so that means 2 = 720. 1/3 is 1 divided by 3 = 360 divided by 3, which is 120. To finish the calculation, you need to add the two numbers which gets you to 820 degrees.

      The clock during the maths lesson went 30 degrees clockwise. This is because the clock is split up in to twelve parts of 360. The handle moved only one of those twelve. 360 divided by 12 is 30. Therefore, the answer is 30 degrees clockwise
