Maths

Try this Mystery Matrix problem from Nrich

Some questions to think about as you work:

  • Where might you start? Why?
  • How can you decide which number is used twice?
  • Which multiplication table does that number come into? Is that the only table it is in?
  • How can you keep a check on which numbers you have used?
  • What are you curious about?

Do your working out on paper. You might like to use the squared paper in your home school pack.

Missing Multipliers would make a great follow-up to this one.

Look again at Chapter 3 of Kensuke’s Kingdom. Michael keeps a diary in the form of a ship’s log about his journey. He spends a long time with only his family for company - a bit like being in isolation!

Begin your own diary about your personal experience of isolation and social distancing. We will add to this a couple of times each week. Write in your personal writing space.

Include these things in your diary:

  • How you felt at first about school closing;
  • What it has been like doing your learning in a different way;
  • How it feels to be isolated from friends;
  • How your family is coping with the situation;
  • Your hopes and fears for the coming weeks.

Maths

Exercise your maths brains with this Nrich problem: Factor-Multiple Chains

Getting started

Investigate this spreadsheet which you can put different numbers into to make chains.

For the smallest chain, what number might it be a good idea to start with on the left?

What could you try first to make the largest chain? You could choose to start with a particular number on the right this time.

How will you know which numbers you have already tried?

 

When you think you understand what is going on, write some statements about some of the numbers in the chain using the words "factor" and "multiple".

 

In these chains, each blue number can range from 2 up to 100 and must be a whole number.

Try to answer these questions:

What are the smallest blue numbers that will make a complete chain?

What are the largest blue numbers that will make a complete chain?

What numbers cannot appear in any chain?

What is the biggest difference possible between two adjacent blue numbers?

What is the largest and the smallest possible range of a complete chain? (The range is the difference between the largest and smallest values.)

Science

Go outside in the garden and practise your classification skills. Search high and low for invertebrates. Some will just be waking up from hibernation, some like dark, damp places (e.g. under plant pots), and many other can be found just by looking closely amongst the leaves at soil level.

If you have them, take these things with you:

See what you can find. If you can, try to catch something in your jar and examine it more closely. Use this Invertebrates Classification Key to work out what you have found.

Remember to treat them gently, and put them back where you found them so they can find their way home.

 

Make an in-depth study of one invertebrate you find. Draw a picture, label it and research some facts about its life. Send this to me on your Class Dojo Portfolio or via the Drive Uploader tool.
