Good morning! Here are the instructions for today's work - Unit 8, week 2, lesson 1 (not lesson 2!)
Please start by watching this video on Espresso - it will help explain about how we can compare and order fractions with the same denominator. Remember you can log-in by using the USER NAME: student 9626 and PASSWORD: crosby3
Now, you're going to draw some pizzas in your book - it might be easier if you have something circular to draw around like a cup.
Draw four pizzas for challenge 1. Follow the instructions and divide them into quarters. Label how many slices you've designed as pepperoni or mushroom or tuna.
Draw four pizzas for challenge 2. Follow the instructions and divide them equally into eights. Think hard about how you can split them evenly so they're the same size. Label how many slices you've designed as pepperoni or mushroom or tuna.
Finally, to complete the challenge, draw four pizzas for challenge 3. Follow the instructions and divide them equally into tenths. It's very difficult to split them evenly, isn't it. Can you explain why it's harder than when you split up the eighths? Label how many slices you've designed as pepperoni or mushroom or tuna. Have a look at the example in the bottom corner of the page - can you create a fraction addition for all your combinations that adds up to a whole pizza?

Now have a go at completing the activities on Unit 8, week 2, lesson 1 (not lesson 2 yet!)
As usual, it starts easier with challenge 1. See if you can push yourselves to complete challenge 2. Challenge 3 goes on to talk about mixed number fractions. Can you see what the answer to 1a would be? It would be 1.34 as it's one whole and 34 hundredths.
Please start by watching this explanation of what percentages are. You'll need to login by using the USER NAME: student 9626 and PASSWORD: crosby3
Now have a look at the example given for challenge 1, before giving your answers to each question as fractions and percentages.
It's not possible to do challenge 2 today, but have a look at challenge 3. You can talk to an adult about the first part, then have a go at writing out the equivalent percentages for each of the questions.

Part 2: Please just answer a,b,c,d,e,f
Part 1: Please don't bother with this.
Part 2: Watch this video to remind you how to perform short division of decimals. (The dividing bit starts at 1:40)
Please complete as many of the questions as you can in twenty minutes.
