Year 3 maths worksheet: train fares

Here we have a worksheet which looks at the cost of going to the seaside by train for the day! There are several concepts involved in this page.

Adults are used to this kind of chart showing prices, but it will probably be unfamiliar to children who will need some explanation on how to read the prices of the tickets.

Once the fares have been understood the questions give good practice at addition, subtraction and multiplication of money. Several of the questions involve two steps, which, as I have said before, makes it much more difficult for children.

When asked how many tickets can be bought for a certain amount children need to understand that half, or ‘part’ of a ticket can not be bought.
