Maths

Before looking at each day's work complete Number of the day to practice your arithmetic skills: https://mathsstarters.net/numofthedayjunior

Remember to keep up your practice on TT Rockstars. If you have any extra time watch the I see maths lesson: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfyh0qIIwTEV8ktNRI0x5-g

It is beneficial to your learning as it explores problem solving and reasoning. The videos are generally only about 10mins long. Links to both are on the class page.

Statistics

The objectives for this topic are:

  • To be able to solve comparison, sum and difference problems using information presented in a line graph
  • To be able to complete, read and interpret information in tables, including timetables.

Line graphs

A line graph is used to display information which changes over time. It is plotted on a graph as a series of points joined with straight lines. The line graph consists of a horizontal x-axis and a vertical y-axis.  The point at which the axes intersect is always (0, 0). Each axis is labelled with a data type. For example, the x-axis could be days, weeks, quarters or years, while the y-axis shows the height of a sunflower. Remember that the general rule is that time goes along the horizontal axis.

The x-axis is also called the independent axis because its values do not depend on anything. For example, time is always placed on the x-axis since it continues to move forward regardless of anything else. The y-axis is also called the dependent axis because its values depend on those of the x-axis generally time e.g. the more time the taller a sunflower grows. More than one line may be plotted in the same axis as a form of comparison.
