Week 1

This week we are doing lots of practical work on combing sets. We have learned that when 2 or more sets are combined the number gets bigger.

We have also been ordering 3 numbers from the smallest to the largest. We checked if we were correct by making towers of cubes.

Today we worked together to sort coins using a decision tree.

We sorted coins using a venn and tree diagram.

Today we

  1. Used balance scales to compare the weight of 2 items. We had to predict first. 
  2. We chose an item and tried to make a ball of dough the same weight. We checked if we were correct using the balance scales. It was quite difficult to make them the same weight. We usually had to take some dough away to make them balance. We also learned that if we changed the shape of the dough it didn't change its weight.
