Maths Homework: 29.9.10
Your homework today is to do lots of things with the number in the splat bubble.
For the digital date, write the short date. In the 'hundreds, tens and units' box, write how many hundreds, tens and units are in your number.
When you partition a number, remember to split it into its hundreds, tens and units,
eg, 345 this would be 300 + 40 + 5 3754 this would be 3000 + 700 + 50 + 4
Numbers less or greater than ~ remember, the wide opening always has the bigger number,
eg. 34 < 56 this means 34 is less than 56.
375 > 37 this means 375 is greater than 37.
In the written problem, the answer should be the number in the bubble, eg if the number was 73, a problem could be, a farmer had 30 sheep and 43 cows. He had 73 animals in total.
Remember to show the calculation and work it out.
Please remember to write your name on the sheet.
