Day 1

As a warm up today I'd like you to have a go at these two word problems.

shopping
120 readers completed a questionnaire for Shopper magazine. 102 said they shopped regularly at a supermarket; 50 said they regularly used local shops. 32 readers said they regularly shopped both at the supermarket and in local shops. How many readers used neither supermarkets nor local shops?

in the gym
Last week 200 people visited the Fit for Life gym. 130 people went swimming in the indoor pool and 65 people used the rowing machine. 15 people went swimming and used the rowing machine. How many people didn’t go for a swim and didn’t use the rowing machine either?

watch the box
75 men were asked which sports they watched on TV. 50 men said they watched football, 30 men said they watched rugby – and 10 men said they watched neither football nor rugby. How many men said they watched both football and rugby?

Day 2

Today I'd like you to have a go at some work on equivalent fractions. First you can look at the picture (click on it to make it bigger) to remind yourself of how to find an equivalent fraction. Then open up the PDF document which will give you the chance to practice these skills. You could answer the questions on a piece of paper.

Day 3

Today I'd like you to do some more work on comparing equivalent fractions. First you can look at the picture from yesterday again (click on it to make it bigger) to remind yourself of how to work out equivalent fractions. Then open up the PDF document which will give you the chance to practice these skills. You could answer the questions on a piece of paper.

Day 4

Today I'd like you to have a go at some work on finding fractions of amounts. First you can look at the picture (click on it to make it bigger) to remind yourself of how to find fractions of amounts. Then open up the PDF document which will give you the chance to practice these skills. You could answer the questions on a piece of paper.

Day 5

Today I'd like you to have a go at this maths skills test which combines lots of different areas of maths that we looked at earlier in the year. Use the websites at the top of the page to help you with any revision you may need to do.
