Maths Challenges



This week our aim is to secure our knowledge of using a formal written method when solving addition problems in a range of different contexts. 



What other words do we know that mean add? What methods do we know? . What method would you use to solve 138 +247

Today's task is an Nrich challenge- it's a partner task so you may need to ask a member of your family to join in. 


Have a go at solving the problem below- who is correct? 

Then roll a dice to create three digit numbers that you must add together.



Choose three items from The Twits joke shop and work out the total. Repeat using different combinations

Extension- which three items would you buy that will be closest to £10?


LO:Solve two step addition problems.


What do you think our success criteria is today?


I purchased some jelly snakes for £3.62 and a glass eye for £4.99, How much change would I get from £25? What are the two steps?


You will need to add the two amounts together and then take your answer away from £25. We normally use column addition and subtraction for this. 


Work through the sheet below- or make up some of your own 2 step problems to solve just like mine. 


LO:Solve two step addition problems.
