In today's maths lesson, you are going to be applying some of the maths skills we have learnt so far this year to a range of different reasoning problems. It's a really great opportunity for you to firstly remember some of the skills we've already learnt and secondly apply these skills in a range of different situations. As always, if you have any questions or misunderstandings with the independent work, please email your teacher for help. Also, if you're particularly proud of what you've done then let us know about that too - we love to hear from you!
Always, Sometimes, Never Extra Challenge:
If you're looking for more reasoning problems to get your teeth stuck into, have a look at the statement cards below.
Explain whether you think each one is always, sometimes or never true. How do you know?
Can you find examples or counter-examples for each one?
For the “sometimes” cards can you explain when they are true? Or rewrite them so that they are always true or never true?
Is it possible to check all examples? Is there another way of knowing?
Can you come up with your own 'Always, sometimes, never' card idea and ask a family member to complete it?
