This week we are going to be using the NCETM Home Learning videos. These lessons are exemplary maths lessons, and will recap previously learnt concepts in a deeper way. Although your children may believe they have learnt what the teacher is explaining, in fact it is taught in a much deeper way than we have had the opportunity to do, so far this year.
The teachers on the videos provide challenges throughout the videos, but also one main challenge at the end of the video. You can submit these challenges via Dojo at the end of the lesson, but they will also be explained and worked through at the beginning of the next video.
Lesson 1 - Adjust addends, to make a calculation easier, keeping the sum the same
Lesson 2 - Extend ‘same sum’ strategy to the addition of larger numbers
Lesson 3 - Extend the ‘same sum’ strategy to calculations with decimal fractions
Lesson 4 - Extend the ‘same sum’ rule to balance equations
Lesson 5 - Balancing equations using the compensation property of addition and subtraction
