9:00am: Live Math Lesson-

Today we are going to continue to use efficient methods for calculating change. We will also explore how this skills can be used as part of a 2-step problem.

Start by attending the live lesson.

Once the live lesson is over pay another visit to Mr M’s shop. Pick an item from the shop. Which coin or note are you going to use to pay for it? Use the ‘Finding the Difference’ technique to calculate the change you would get from the shop keeper. Repeat this process for at least 5 separate items.

Extension: Can you write a 2-step problem like Mr included in the live lesson. When you have written the 2-step problem, send it in so Mr M can try to work out the answer.
