## Harry Potter Challenge

### Posted by Miss Gardiner | Posted in Addition, Division, Four Operations, Multiplication, Number, Subtraction | Posted on September 7, 2016

This is a great activity for students to practice the mental maths strategies.

Students are to sit in a circle with 2 students standing in the middle back to back. The students take 3 steps away from each other. The teacher needs to call out a Maths problem for the students to solve in their heads. The first student to solve the problem can turn around and zap the other student with their wand. They can then reveal their answer. If they were wrong the other person wins the round. The person who is out can switch with someone in the circle.

## KABAM!

### Posted by Miss Gardiner | Posted in Division, Multiplication | Posted on August 17, 2016

Played in groups of 3-4

Students place KABAM! cards face down on the table. Students take it in turn to flip over a card and solve the division problem. If the students gets the answer correct they can keep the card, if they are incorrect they can place it back in the table. If a student picks up a KABAM! card they must put all their cards back down on the table and start again.

## Figure Me Out Project

### Posted by Miss Gardiner | Posted in Addition, Division, Four Operations, Multiplication, Subtraction | Posted on August 17, 2016

Students create questions based around themselves with numerical answers, e.g. age, house number, number of siblings, number of letters in their first name, shoe size.. (the list is endless). Once students have the answers, they have to create equations to be worked out to get to their answer, e.g ‘My Age’ Answer=12, Equation could be 2×6= 10+2= or even more advanced using BODMAS, decimals, fractions etc.

Once students have created the equations and answers, they present these on a poster with the equation displayed on a piece of paper or a post it note that can be opened up to display the answer underneath.

## Cookie jar – sharing activity

### Posted by lisar | Posted in Division | Posted on September 18, 2015

Materials: Coloured pencils, plain paper and counters.

Task details: This activity can also be linked to the text ‘When the doorbell rang’. Students will draw a cookie jar in the middle of their page and place cookies (counters) within the drawn jar. Students will then draw a picture of themselves and a friend. They will then share out the cookies evenly by moving the counters one at a time. Once the cookies have been shared out they will draw and write the amount of cookies each person gets.

Skills: Counting, sharing and grouping.

Extension: Have more people to share the cookies between such as, the member of the students’ family.

Include different coloured counters (different flavoured cookies) which will need to be grouped before being shared.

## Four Operations Board Game

### Posted by lisar | Posted in Addition, Division, Four Operations, Multiplication, Subtraction | Posted on September 17, 2015

Students design and create a game board in the style of their choice.

Students create question cards using the four operations. (i.e 8 addition equations, 8 subtraction, 8 multiplication and 8 division) There can be a mixture of number sentences and worded problems.

Each  process is written on a different colour card.

Game boards include sections where players pick up cards as well as general game instructions. (i.e move back 2 spaces. Roll a 5 to move again)

The game board can also be used for:

• Measurement (to measure how long your journey is)
• Money (collecting and taking away money amounts along the way)

## Zoo Division

### Posted by lisar | Posted in Division | Posted on September 17, 2015

Here is a math’s activity  about division.

Description of project:

Monday- Focus on plan of zoo. Create zoo name, list of animals, list of food and any other things that animals require in their enclosures.

Tuesday- Students are given a number of animals and have to sort how many animals go into which enclosure. Use unifix blocks to divide animals on the template.

Wednesday-

Zoo template with enclosures. Students are given a number of animals and have to sort how many animals go into which enclosures. Use pictures of animals to sort cut and paste onto their animal enclosures.

Students will also draw pictures of the food that each animal requires. The amounts of food need to be shared equally. For example, if elephants have 5 peanuts, the lion needs to have 5 steaks.

Thursday –

Students continue to use pictures of animals to sort them.

Students write the equation for how they have divided all the animals.

Students distribute zoo keepers into their enclosures and write worded problems.

### Posted by MissHerring | Posted in Area, Division, Money, Multiplication | Posted on September 6, 2015

This is an open ended project that covers concepts multiplication, area and money.

Students are given the task of designing their own café. They work through the stages of the project and based on abilities can vary the complexity of each stage.

Stages include:

– Working out the area of rooms using a given floor plan

– Staffing with cooks and waiters

– Profits that are earned

## Missing Keys on a Calculator

### Posted by Miss Forscutt | Posted in Addition, Division, Four Operations, Multiplication, Number, Subtraction | Posted on December 3, 2014

This is an opened ended activity, allowing students to use the four operations. Students read the problem and record all the ways that they try to solve it.

Problem:

Sally was making numbers on her calculator but the keys for the number 6 and the number 7 were broken.

Sally wanted to display the number 467 in the calculator’s window.

How many ways can you make 467 on the calculator if the 6 and the 7 keys are broken?

Example of a solution:

400 + 30 + 30 + 4 + 3 = 467

## Division “I Spy”

### Posted by Miss Araujo | Posted in Division, Games | Posted on December 3, 2014

Use PDF template and answer sheet to prepare the game ahead of time.

How to play:

1. Place all the cards from letters A to L around your Learning Space.

2. Students try to find all the division cards around the Learning Space.

3. As the students find each card, one by one they write down the lettered card and division problem on their answer sheet.

4.Once students find all the cards, to reduce congestion, students can then draw a picture to match each division problem and work out the answers at their tables.

5. Afterwards, correct all the answers together as a whole.

*This activity can also be altered to focus on time, multiplication or other operations.

*Can be modified to cater to higher year levels.
