Our 'athon' this year focusses on developing our students' knowledge of maths basic facts. We have 5 lists of questions that are at different levels of complexity. We want as many of our students as possible to be able to instantly recall (without having to revert to strategy) their basic facts. Teachers will continue to teach problem solving strategies and the concepts behind how numbers and our place value system works through regular maths programmes. Below is what each ‘set’ will cover. Each child will be given a set to learn from week one next term, with testing in week seven of the term.
This is also our major fundraiser for the year, so we hope as many children as possible can get behind it as possible.
Set 1 (10 questions)
Addition and subtraction to 12 e.g. 8+3=
Set 2 (25 questions)
Addition and subtraction to 20 e.g. 20-8=
Doubles and halves e.g. double 4=
What number comes before/after to 20 e.g. What number comes after 16
Set 3 (50 questions)
Addition and subtraction to 20
Multiplication up to the 10 times tables
Number bonds to 100 e.g. ?+60=100
Number bonds to 1000 e.g. 800+?=1000
Set 4 (75 questions)
Addition and subtraction facts to 20 e.g. 14+?=20
Multiplication and division facts up to 12 times tables
Set 5 (100 questions)
Addition and subtraction facts to 100
Multiplication and division up to 12 times tables
Fraction, decimals and percentage conversion e.g. 1/2 = 50% = 0.5
Please click on the links below to view the set test questions. Your child's teacher will let you know which set your child needs to learn. The slideshows will be used to test the students on the Mathathon day and will be a good way to practice at home.
