    Hello, we have ofsted monday/Tuesday. I am a bit concerned about my numeracy. I am in year 4. We have been doing the compact method in num so on Monday I thought I would go over this and the lows and middles can practise and I'll teach the tops the 2 digit by 2 digit method, then on Tuesday I want them to apply the skill which I thought they could do through an investigation. What does everyone think? I need some investigation ideas. Thanks
     
  2. what is the compact method?
     
  3. Do you mean the long multiplication algorithm?

    Oops I mean the compact method for multiplication! So need multiplication investigation ideas!
     
  5. If so ... perhaps a school trip investigation

    Some prices provided for different places

    prices of a packed lunch, a drink, etc

    What is the total cost if xx children go
    What can you do if you only have ££ money
