New Wave Mental Maths Week 31 - Monday & Problem
Number 14: A regular Octagon has 8 sides of equal length.
Monday’s Problem: Remember to find the area - first you must divide the shape into 2 rectangles and then find the area of each one and finally add the 2 answers.
For Perimeter - Just add all the sides together.
Units of Measurement :
Today I want you to do - V1 and V2 and for Revision
V2 is all about LENGTH.
Remember there are 3 numbers we need to remember!
10 mm = 1 cm
100cm = 1 m
1000m = 1 km
And using decimals
1 mm = 0.01 cm ( Think 10ths)
1 cm = 0.01 m ( Think 100ths)
1 m = 0.001 km ( Think 1000ths)
Spend at least 10 minutes on each of these and 10 minutes doing Revision of Place Value - A1 This seems easy enough.
(At least 30 minutes on IXL every day)
