"Explain how you know"

Discussion in 'Primary' started by robyn147, May 18, 2011.

  1. I just love the way their minds work. Was going through some Y5 optional SATs today.
    "Sara says you can tell if a 2 digit number is odd just by looking at the last digit. Is she right? Explain how you know"
    Yes - because my teacher told me.

    You have a 1-6 dice and a 1-5 spinner, "Peter says you have more chance of getting an odd number on the spinner than the dice. Is he right? Explain"
    Answer - No
    Why not? He's not a mindreader, is he? How does he know what's going to come up?

    I'm sure being a SATs marker must crack you up sometimes with the responses. What does go through their mind?
