Coming soon: Square numbers, percentages and addition game

snowflake_1Next week we have a maths worksheet for Year 5 children which introduces the idea of  ‘index’ for writing the square of a number. Children should understand that 42 means ‘4 squared’ or 4 times 4. Often it is mistaken for 4 x 2.

We also have a page looking at the relationship between fractions, decimal fractions and percentages. This often proves very tricky for many children who fail to grasp that because percentage means ‘out of 100’ it can also be represented as a fraction. Most suited to Year 6 children.

For younger children we have a dice game which gives practice with counting single digits.
