Mathematical Literacy Tweak of the Week Mathematical Literacy Tweak of the Week

Work out the answer to the following 5 x 3 + 4

Work out the answer to the following 5 x 3 + 4 4 + 3 x 5

Work out the answer to the following 5 x 3 + 4 4 + 3 x 5 (4 + 3) x 5

Work out the answer to the following 5 x 3 + 4 = 19 4 + 3 x 5 = 19 (4 + 3) x 5 = 35

These follow the rules of BIDMAS 5 x 3 + 4 = 19 4 + 3 x 5 = 19 (4 + 3) x 5 = 35 Brackets Indices Division Multiplication Addition Subtraction

Settling in task Write the date using numbers So today will be 16:06:2014 Can you use the numbers in the date to make the year? 1 6 0 6 2 0 = 14 1)Use all the numbers only once in any order. 2)Use all the numbers in the order they are in according to the date.

Settling in task Write the date using numbers So today will be 16:06:2014 1 6 0 6 2 0 = 14 6 + 6 + 2 + 0 + 0 x 1 = 14 16 – 2 0 - 6 0 = 14 (1 + 6 + 0 x 6) x 2 + 0 = 14

VM2 Stage 2 Date 16:05:2014 2 0 = 1 0 2 = 0

VM2 Stage 2 Date 19:05:2014 2 0 = 1 0 2 = 0

VM3 Stage 1 Date 21:05:2014

Suggestions for use in other strands Could be used to remember key dates, number sequences that will be used during a lesson sequence. Could be used as a reminder of BIDMAS when about to embark on basic calculations later in the lesson.
