determined by geometric and up/down the value of y. Point to various points, asking students
to write the coordinates on their whiteboards. Check they are
written correctly.

inverse operations to simplify understand that this means ‘What do I need to add to 5.8 to make
calculations with whole 6?’, and that the answer (worked mentally) is 0.2.

Say that another method is to rearrange the equation 5.8 + 􀂅= 6.
Ask what the other three equations could be and establish that they
􀂅+ 5.8 = 6 5.8 = 6 – 􀂅􀂅= 6 – 5.8
• Which of these would be the easiest to complete? What is the answer?

this means the answer is 720 grams, which accords with the
• For an answer in kilograms, what must I do? (÷ 1000 to get 0.72 kg)
Repeat with 4.24 kg + 1.47 kg. Ask students to do the calculation
on their calculators (remind them to clear the display first), and to
tell you the answer. Stress the need to include units in the answer.
• For an answer in grams, what must I do? (× 1000 to get 5710 g)
Now write 5.43 m + 8.27 m for students to calculate. Establish that
