FM Straightforward problem(s) with more than 1 step

A straightforward problem requires students to either work through one step or process OR to work through more than one connected step or process. Individual problems are based on the knowledge and/or skills in the mathematical content areas (MCA). At Level 1 it is expected that the student will be able to address individual problems, some of which draw upon a combination of any two of the MCA (number, measures, data) and require students to make connections between those content areas. The context of individual problems at L1 will require some comprehension in order for the student to be able independently to identify and carry out an appropriate mathematical approach.

Can be cut up into flashcards and used as a quiz.   Number the back of them and laminate. Place face down on a table, Each team or individual must collect a card, answer it and then place it back on the table for others to use.

I wrote this to add to Timings in a Salon by Carrie Bray (see link left) as I needed to encourage my higher level students in the same area.

I started the session by giving students terminology which they had to define, then work out how much it was worth if a=1p b=2p etc. (see PPT).

I used then used tasks to recap on 24 hour and analogue time next then used the attached worksheets alongside Carrie's worksheet.

I then provided a Tarsia puzzle at the end to recap on time.
