Subtraction Methods Homework

Here it is, week two of our flipped classroom homework.  This time we are moving onto subtraction written methods.  Hopefully, this week is slightly neater (ipads are not the easiest gadgets to write on!) and I have, hopefully, lessened my West Country accent!

Our first flipped classroom had a huge impact, with more than half of the class reaching our gold layered target after one lesson.  More application and problem solving is to follow but lets hope subtraction yields similar results.

~ Wow! Well done, Class NZ maths set. That's huge learning progress! You're practising one of our 'R's' of learning here by your 'Readiness' to learn on your own. Strictly, most of you shouldn't be at Gold until much later in the year or even next year, so to do it after just 1 lesson shows immense learning taking place. Keep it up. 8)

You did them at a slow pace so that everyone could understand them which is good. How could we make it more challenging for people who already understand it?

Spoken like a true School Councillor, Dylan! You're really impressing me this year. Any suggestions?

Hmm, good point Dylan. Could we look at another level of mathematics, related but harder? If you are already comfortable with Gold layered targets you must be VERY happy with your learning, however we must keep you challenged. As Mr Ryan said, how do you think we could do this whilst keeping all learners engaged? :o

You could set a tricky question at the end for those who get it and not explain how to solve it. We have to solve it and explain how it is done. 8)

Great idea Dylan. Shall try it out next week.

Yes I think that would work better for everyone , as long as it properly difficult otherwise it would be a different question but simple . :zzz
