Distance Time Graphs

Distance-time graphs are a way to show data about how someone or something is moving over time.

I have used my cycling data as an example.

Here's a map of a 24km bike ride I did last week:

Here is a table showing how long it had taken at each kilometre of the ride...

Time elapsed (nearest minute) Distance (km)
10 1.4
20 3.5
30 5.7
40 9.5
50 11
60 13.6
70 16
80 19
90 21
100 24

 From this I can draw a graph. Watch these videos which show you how to draw and interpret a distance-time graph. Have some squared paper, ruler and pencil to hand so that you can draw the graph as well as you watch. 

If you haven't got any squared paper at home you can use this Printable Graph Paper

Measuring and comparing quantities.

Activity 1: make your own balance scales!

Watch these video clips to show you how to make your own set of balance scales:

TASK!…weighs the same as ….is heavier than….…is lighter than…

Using your homemade scales write at least three sentences (you can do more if you like!) comparing the mass of different objects.

Here’s some ideas of things around the house you could use:

·         Shampoo bottle

·         Soap

·         Fruit

·         Crayons

·         Building bricks

·         Toy cars

·         Pack of playing cards

·         Mobile phone

·         Stones from the garden

·         Toy figures

·         Toy food

Here’s two sentences from the objects I used in the video:

The marble is heavier than the pen.

One big marble weighs the same as 7 small marbles.

You can use this writing paper to help practice your handwriting skills too.

If you don’t have this equipment then have a go at this interactive lesson on measuring weight:

ONLINE INTERACTIVE LESSON

 Extension: Converting between grams (g) and kilograms (kg) using a calculator.

 There are 1000g in 1kg.

Example:

3000g = 3kg   

Because 3000 ÷ 1000 = 3

Example:

2.5kg = 2500g  

Because 2.5 x 1000 = 2500

Here’s two short video clips which go through this (in the video it shows you a non-calculator method for multiplication and division of 1000. HAVE A GO at this but you can also use a calculator if you want).

Then there’s some questions on converting between kilograms and grams for you to try.

Extension: Converting between centimetres (cm) and metres (m) using a calculator.

 There are 100cm in 1m.

Example:

650cm = 6.5m   

Because 600 ÷ 100 = 6

Example:

4m = 400cm  

Because 4 x 100 = 400

Here’s two short video clips which go through this (in the video it shows you a non-calculator method for multiplication and division of 1000. HAVE A GO at this but you can also use a calculator if you want).

Extension: Converting between litres (l) and millilitres (ml) using a calculator.

 There are 1000ml in 1l. 

Example:

8000ml = 8l  

Because 8000 ÷ 1000 = 8 

Example:

4.5l = 4500ml  

Because 4.5 x 1000 = 4000 

Here’s two short video clips which go through this (in the video it shows you a non-calculator method for multiplication and division of 1000. HAVE A GO at this but you can also use a calculator if you want).

This week it will be useful for you to gather some containers and equipment to measure things with –

To include:

Measuring jug

Ruler

Scales

 

Today’s activity involves making our own set of scales and for this you will need

·         2 pots/cups

·         a coat hanger

·         string

 

Measuring and comparing quantities.

Activity 1: make your own balance scales!

Watch these video clips to show you how to make your own set of balance scales:

…weighs the same as

….is heavier than….

…is lighter than…

Using you homemade scales write at least three sentences (you can do more if you like!) comparing the mass of different objects.

Here’s some ideas of things around the house you could use:

·         Shampoo bottle

·         Soap

·         Fruit

·         Crayons

·         Building bricks

·         Toy cars

·         Pack of playing cards

·         Mobile phone

·         Stones from the garden

·         Toy figures

·         Toy food

Here’s two sentences from the objects I used in the video:

The marble is heavier than the pen.

One big marble weighs the same as 7 small marbles.

 

You can use this writing paper to help practice your handwriting skills too.

 

If you don’t have this equipment then have a go at this interactive lesson on measuring weight:

ONLINE INTERACTIVE LESSON

 Extension: Converting between grams (g) and kilograms (kg) using a calculator.

 There are 1000g in 1kg.

Example:

3000g = 3kg   

Because 3000 ÷ 1000 = 3

Example:

2.5kg = 2500g  

Because 2.5 x 1000 = 2500

Here’s two short video clips which go through this (in the video it shows you a non-calculator method for multiplication and division of 1000. HAVE A GO at this but you can also use a calculator if you want).

Then there’s some questions on converting between kilograms and grams for you to try.

Grams to Kilograms:

Kilograms to grams:

Watch this video clip which reminds you about how to correctly use a ruler: 

 

Now watch this video clip reminding you about the perimeter of a shape:

 

Now try this worksheet on perimeter. They are at different levels so choose the one which you feel is the right level for yourself.

If you don’t have a ruler at home try this set of worksheets calculating perimeter

And have a go at this interactive lesson:

ONLINE INTERACTIVE LESSON

Now have some fun and look around your house and complete this Scavenger hunt measurement activity

Additional:

If you have a smart phone or watch then when you are out on your daily exercise, have a go at timing how long it takes you to walk or run a kilometre. Estimate first and then time yourself and see how close you are!

Extension: Converting between centimetres (cm) and metres (m) using a calculator.

 There are 100cm in 1m.

Example:

650cm = 6.5m   

Because 600 ÷ 100 = 6

Example:

4m = 400cm  

Because 4 x 100 = 400

Here’s two short video clips which go through this (in the video it shows you a non-calculator method for multiplication and division of 1000. HAVE A GO at this but you can also use a calculator if you want).

Then there’s some questions on converting between centimetres and metres for you to try.

Centimetres to metres

Metres to Centimetres

Today is about measuring capacity (liquid) so you will be using a measuring jug to measure out the following amounts of liquid. If you have it - it does make it easier to read the scales if you put a little food colouring in the water.

·         500ml

·         750ml

·         50ml

·         100ml

·         300ml

·         250ml

 

If you don’t have a measuring jug at home then try this interactive lesson: 

ONLINE INTERACTIVE LESSON 

And/or try these measuring capacity worksheets 

Extension: Converting between litres (l) and millilitres (ml) using a calculator.

 There are 1000ml in 1l. 

Example:

8000ml = 8l  

Because 8000 ÷ 1000 = 8 

Example:

4.5l = 4500ml  

Because 4.5 x 1000 = 4000 

Here’s two short video clips which go through this (in the video it shows you a non-calculator method for multiplication and division of 1000. HAVE A GO at this but you can also use a calculator if you want).

Then there’s some questions on converting between millimetres and litres for you to try.

Millilitres to litres

 

Litres to millilitres

Measuring and converting Time

Today is a fun activity to do with how many of something you can do in a minute!

You will need something that can time a minute but you should be able to do this on a mobile phone.

If you can’t do something on the sheet then make up your own challenge!

What can I do in a minute?

Now watch this video on converting and using the 24hr clock and complete this worksheet on

converting times between 12 and 24 hour clocks

Week commencing 27/04/2020 

Intended outcomes:

For pupils to be more fluent at using addition and subtraction skills, including using number bonds and other known facts in order to more effectively and efficiently solve problems in a variety of contexts.

Specific objectives covered across the week:

  • Add and subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction where appropriate
  • Solve addition and subtraction two-step problems in contexts including money, deciding which operations and methods to use and why.

Today you need ordinary dice or alternatively use this interactive dice

ONLINE 9-SIDED DICE

Playing the game closest to 1000:

 

If you have a mini-whiteboard or a chalk board that’s ideal as you can rub out and start over but otherwise a piece of paper is absolutely fine.


Make a grid like this:

You can see it looks like an addition sum. The idea of the game is to get as close to 1000 as you can. Roll the dice and put the digit in one of the boxes. Take it in turns to roll the dice and make sure to put the numbers in the boxes as you go along and not all at the end! After 6 rolls you have made your sum so add the two numbers and see how close you are!
