question: Carl looked at the page numbers on the open book in front of him. the left and right page numbers added to 333 what were the page numbers?

predict: i think this would be addition

clarify: i had nothing to clarify

the big question: what 2 consecutive numbers equal 333

Solve:

  • first i tried to half 333 but it is a odd number so you couldn’t  so the closest thing you can get is 166 or 167.

so if you add these two numbers you get a total of 333 so that gives you you’re answer.

Summary: i got my prediction correct and i used the find the pattern or a rule technique.

Predict: I thought this would be about addition.

clarify: I had nothing to clarify

the big question: what two consecutive numbers equal 97.

Solve:

  • first  tried to half 97 but you cant do that because it is a odd number.
  • then i got the closest thing to half which was 48 or 49
  • so i decided that one of the numbers had to be those.
  • so i chose 48 and 49  and added that which had the answer of 97.

Problem: Jacks car can travel 15km per litre of petrol. He leaves Dubbo with 30 litres of petrol in his car and drives towards maitland. Which town will he be closest to when he runs out of fuel.

Dubbo-200km-Wellinngton-100km-mudgee-150km-singleton-200km-maitland

Preidct: I thought this would be a bout multiplication and addition.

Clarify: I had nothing to clarify

Find the big question: What town will he end up closest to.

Solve:

  1. First I multiplied 15 by 30 because he had 30 litres of petrol in his car and he goes 15km with every one litre. I got the answer of 450 so that means he could travel 450km.
  2. Then I looked at the map and added and added all the kilometres and I got the answer of Singleton

Dubbo-200km-Wellinngton-100km-mudgee-150km-singleton-200km-maitland

so he made it all the way to singleton

 

Summary: I got my prediction right and I I used the “have I seen a similar problem”.

maths mate term 2 week 6

 

Question: Each letter represents a different digit  from 1-9. If R=8 what number does FOUR equal.

TWO

+TWO=

FOUR

Predict: I thought this would be about addition.

Clarify: I had nothing to clarify

Find the big picture: what does the FOUR represent.

Solve:

1.first I looked at the 2 O’s then I knew that r=8 so the O is 4

TWO

+TWO

FOUR=8

2. Then I thought that the W could be a 1 and the U is 2.

TWO

+TWO

FOU=2 R=8

3.Because the FOUR has more letters than TWO the T has to be 5 or over. I made the T a 7 so I got the answer 1428

TWO

+TWO

F=1 O=4 U=2  R=8

Summary: My prediction was correct and I used the guess check and improve strategy.

question: Complete the multiplication table.

  times 3
63
1 7 4
8

Predict: I thought this would be about multiplication

clarify: i had nothing to clarify.

Find the big picture: Complete the multiplication table.

Solve:

1. First i filled in the 3 times column. then i tried to figure out the 3 times column. I knew the 7 seven went to the middle top row. And the 4 went beside it.

  times 3  7  4
63
1  3 7 4
8

2.

then i multiplied all the rows and columns and got the answer of…

  times 3 7  4
 9  27 63  36
1  3 7 4
 2  6  14 8

Summary: I used the use a table or a graph technique.

Question: complete the multiplication table

times 4 2
12
6 48
2

Predict: I thought this will be about problem solving

Clarify: I had nothing to clarify

The big question: complete the multiplication table

Solving:

1. first i looked at all the numbers they already gave us, and i thought what i will need to get 48 from 6 and another number. I settled on the number 8 so i put an 8 in the top left column. Than i looked at the 2nd column and thought what i would need to get 12 from 4 and another number, I got 3.  then i looked at the far right column and put a one under the given 6.

times  8
4 2
 3 12
6 48
 1 2

2. Then i filled in the rest.

times  8
4 2
 3  24 12  6
6 48  24  12
 1  8  4

Summary: I used my use a table or a chart technique.

Clarify: I had nothing to clarify.

Find the big picture: how much are 6 protractors, if one compass is $3

Solve:

  1. First I looked at much one compass is and doubled it.
  2. 2. Then that left me with the answer $6

Summary: I used find the big picture
