Before the Easter holidays, we would have been working on Problem Solving involving money and units of measure.
Problem to solve:
Evan is saving up to buy a new game. The game costs £45.00. So far he has saved £15.50. Over the next month he saves another £20.10. How much has he saved altogether? How much more does he need to buy the game?
When solving word problems, think: What do I know? What do I need to do first? Which operation(s) do I need to use? Do I need to write any units of measure for the answer? (£, p, cm, ml etc...)
Activities to complete:
E.G. Peter has a jug of drink containing 750ml of juice. He drinks 330ml and his friend drinks 170ml. How much of the juice is left?
