  1. I have done mixed numbers,proper and improper fractions,patterns and algebra and division and subtraction.I have made an big impact on my maths getting great and perfect.

  2. I have done 3 courses
    .comparing decimals
    .algebra-solving simple equations
    .simplifying fractions
    These courses have helped me to solve algebra equations,helped me with fractions and comparing decimals.

  3. I first done volume, I timsed 3 numbers together and I learned that if there’s one that hase cm and mm you must convert one then times it. Then I done algebra and I learnt if there’s an equation like this: 2u+6=3u you just and a +0 at the end. Afterwards I practised multiplying so I can get faster because I’m slow at multiplication!

  4. I did one on solving algebra equations and to answer the questions I rearranged the sum so the numbers would have algebra on one side an positives on the other
    Side.so whatever I was left with would be something x for example 2x=20
    So x would eaqual 10 because you divide it by 2 because it’s 2x

  5. I’ve improved in my knowledge of inverse .Through the courses given for this, I’ve found different ways to solve various problems related to the subject. In addition, to this I have found the inverese really easy. The corse I did was “I am thinking of a number”

  6. The course which I have practiced is my times tables. I have practised my times tables because I needed to practise recalling them efficiently and accurately. I have learnt to recall them without struggle and very efficiently.

    The first course I did was multiplication and divion – are you ready?
    I chose this course because i needed to practice my times tables and divion; because in the SATs some of the questions are multiplication and divion so i wanted to practice them to get faster and better at them as i aint that fast and accurate.

    The second course i did was ratio and proportion. I chose this course because I struggled to solve ratio and propertion problems accurately so i decided to pThe first course I did was multiplication and divion – are you ready?

    The second course i did was ratio and proportion. I chose this course because im not that sure i know how to solve ratio and propertion problems accurately so i decided this course would help me get better.
    The third course i did was Fractions and converting them to equivalent ones.
    I chose this course because i wanted to improve my skills in changing fractions to equivalent fractions as i find it abit hard so i wanted to practice incase theres a question in the SATs that you will have to change equivalent fractions.

    The last course i did was learning my Fractions. I chose this course because i wanted to improve my fraction skills and converting to equivalent fractions. The numbers I found abit hard was practising equivalent fractions because sometimes theres a question in the SATs that you will have to convert fractions to equivalent fractions.

  7. I have done 3 times tables courses because I need to improve on my speed in a few of the times tables. I have also played a few games on grand prix racing because I can improve on my speed.

  8. Mathletics
    The three courses I did are:
    *The first course I did was about Lines and Angles.The topic I did it about was ‘What line am I?’In this course it tells you to identify the different types of lines.This would help me because sometimes I think vertical lines are when a line went across,horizontal was when it went upwards.Now when I did his course,it helped me to save the knowledge in my mind.At the start of this course,when I did my first attempt,I got it red because I did not understand it.However,when i went on my second attempt I knew where I was making my mistake.Also there were perpendicular lines and parallel lines.They were most difficult for me because I always remembered that one of them lines would be that they would never meet together,but I never knew which ones they were.Now I understand what all of them mean and how to to work out which type of line they are:
    Parallel lines-means when two lines would never meat up with each other.
    Perpendicular lines-means that the lines are at right angles (90°) to each other.
    Horizontal lines-means the line go across.
    Vertical lines-means lines that go upwards.

    The second course I did was about Mass and Capacity.The
    topic it was about was ‘How many blocks?’It asks how many blocks are in different shaped cubes and cuboids.To work this out I counted how many cubes were across in one line an dhow many went upward/downward in one line and times-ed by each other.For example,if there were 5 upwards and 4 across.To work this out you would do 5 x 4,which would equal 20.Answer=20

    The last course I did was about Operations with fractions.The topic of this was about Unit fractions.Unit fractions are fractions where the top number (numerator) is E.G: 1 over 5 ( 1/5 ) – The top number is 1 so it is a unit fraction.A unit fraction is any fraction with a numerator of 1 for example: 1/8 is a unit fraction 1/125, is a unit fraction 9/16 is NOT a unit fraction.A unit fraction is a rational number written as a fraction where the numerator is one and the denominator is a positive integer.Examples are 1/1, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4 etc.

  9. Division Skills!!
    I have trouble doing division by 10,100,1000 and I know I need to workon this because in the SATS they will have a lot of questions about this topic in tne test. One of the questions were 121000 divided by 1000 which is 121.

    Multiplication Skills!!
    I think I need to work on these skills because I feel I am not efficient and quick in finding the answer. Thanks to Mathletics,I have now learnt how to be quick in answering multiplication questions in class and in the text.

    Fraction Skills!!

    I think I need some help with my knowledge on equivalent fractions because even though we have covered this topic I still need some support with some of the harder questions such as, 15/120 = 1/?. First I done 15 times 1 which is 15, then I done 120 divided by 15 which was 8. So the answer was 1/8. By using this method I can now confidently answer fraction questions efficiently.

    I have made progress in these 3 topics and I will now use what I have now learnt in class and in the SATS.
    Hope you enjoyed my post!!

  10. I completed the course ‘fraction by whole number’.(fractions times whole numbers.)

    The literacy homework won’t let you type in the answers.

  11. I’ve improved in my knowledge of probability and data. Through the courses given for this, I’ve found different ways to solve various problems related to the subject. I’ve learnt how to interpret step graphs, line graphs, compound graphs and travel graphs. In addition, I practised doing work on combinations and finding the probability.

    As well as looking at probability and data, I tried solving problems involving time and temperature. This is because, sometimes time seemed to be quite confusing and, therefore, I used to get a few questions incorrect. Now that I have found different ways to solve questions involving time and temperature, it seems a lot more easier!

    My final topic was volume, mass and capacity. This topic helped me convert between different units of measurements, helped me learn more about how to find out the volume of 3D shapes such as cuboids. In addition, I practised adding by converting different units of measurement; for example: turning ml to L, turning cm to m and changing g to kg.

    Thank you for reading! :P

    P.S. I managed to earn to certificates – a bronze certificate and a silver certificate.

    :D :D :D :D :D :D

  12. The first course I did was multiplication and divion – are you ready?
    I chose this course because i needed to practice my times tables and divion; because in the SATs some of the questions are multiplication and divion so i wanted to practice them to get faster and better at them as i aint that fast and accurate.
    The second course i did was ratio and proportion.
    I chose this course because im not that sure i know how to solve ratio and propertion problems accurately so i decided this course would help me get better.
    The third course i did was Fractions – improper to mixed.
    I chose this course because i wanted to improve my skills in changing improper fractions to mixed numbers as i find it abit hard so i wanted to practice incase theres a question in the SATs that you will have to change improper fractions to mixed numbers. :)

  13. I have improved on decimals and percentages. In class we have done a lot of decimals and percentages but I think that I don’t really understand a little bit. Maths tests include decimals and percentages.

    One of the easiest course which I have done on Matheletics is converting decimals to percentages. This course is really important because in the SATs you can convert other fractions to percentages. This helps me because in the SATs for some questions you have to convert and then do something else to it. Eg: 0.2= 2/10.

    Another course which I done was multiplying decimals into whole numbers. This helps me because for questions in the SATs you need to know how to times a decimal number by 10, 100 and 1000. Eg:2.1×10= 21.

    The last course which I did was rounding decimals. This course I was struggling quiet on. I needed to round the decimal to the nearest number. Eg: round 35.95 to the nearest tenth. The answer to that is 36.0. If the tenth is 9 then the 35 will turn into 36 because 9 is above 4.

  14. My first corse I did was “i am thinking of a number” I have improved in my inverse because I used inverse to solve the problem. I needed to use the inverese to find out what the missing number was. This has helped me a lot because when we go to Mr Griffins group on Tuesday after school we some times do the inverese.

  15. I have improved on solving different operations with fractions – adding:common denominator. I have worked on this topic because we haven’t been through this topic in lessons so I thought I might struggle in the test if I didn’t understand it. I have learnt that if they have a common denominator you will not need to change the denominator; you will need to keep it as the original number but The other numbers on the numerators will need to be added together.

    I have also worked on finding fractions by whole numbers. I have chosen this topic because we also haven’t learnt this in lessons. I didn’t have a clue what to do for the first question then I worked it out and got used to the rest of the questions. For example, ( one of the questions were): 7 x 3/8 = 21/8. I got the answer 21/8 because I multiplied 7 by the numerator which was three and then it had a common denominator which was eight so I kept eight as my denominator. Once I multiplied seven by my numerator I had 21 as my numerator and eight as my denominator.

    The last topic I practiced was my multiplication facts. I have practiced my multiplication facts because I sometimes struggle on recalling them quickly and efficiently so I chose to practice them. I have learnt to recall my multiplication facts more quickly and accurately.

  16. The three courses i have done are patterns and algebra and fractions and probability because that’s what i think will help me in my SAT s .

  17. I done the multiplication and the division one.also I done the decimal and percentage one because these were the ones that i needed to practice.

  18. On math lefties I did the 3 courses called converting km to m, lines and angles estimating and patterns and algebra guess the number. I have learnt that there is 1000 kilo meters in a meter so when you convert m to km always x or divide by 1000. Also that when you are trying to guess the number when I was doing the algebra course you need to read the question and do the inverse to answer the question. The reason why I did these question instead of ratio and proportion is because I believe I am very good at ratio and proportion thanks to Mr Griffin.
