Review 15

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Math at Home is a series of activities designed as a follow-up to what your child learns in school. It aims to bring math out of the classroom and into the home, to make math relevant to daily life. It comprises simple games and hands-on activities that can be carried out easily, helping your child have a delightful learning experience. Have a fun-filled time with your child as you enjoy math at home!

Dear Parents/Guardians, We had great fun learning how to add and subtract using mental calculation. We also learned to use subtraction to find a missing number. Find out how your child does it by carrying out the following activities together.

• Make 19 number cards of tens and ones. • On nine of the number cards, write the number '1 O' on each of them. These will be the 'tens'. • On the remaining ten number cards, write the number '1' on each of them. These will be the 'ones'. 10

• Display a few tens and ones face-up on the table. For example, place 6 tens and 5 ones on the table. These cards represent the number 65. • Say to your child, "What number must be added to 65 to make 100?" • Prompt your child to use the remaining ones to make a ten together with the 5 ones already on the table. • Next, ask your child to count the remaining tens that make a hundred together with the 7 tens (made up of 6 tens and 10 ones) already on the table. • Prompt your child to say, "3 tens and 5 ones added to 65 make 100". • Repeat this using a different combination of number cards.

Dear Parents/Guardians, We learned multiplication and division by 4, 5 and 10. We also learned how to divide when there is a remainder. Practice more multiplication and division at home with your child.

When we divide 9 tomatoes into 4 equal groups, 1 tomato is left over.

~{I •• •••

•••••••••

Help your child discover multiplication in everyday life. Bring him or her on an exciting trip to the supermarket! • At the supermarket, look for batteries in packs of 4. • Tell your child each pack has 4 batteries. Ask him or her how many batteries 6 packs have. • Repeat this with items in the supermarket that come in groups of 5 (such as pastries) and groups of 10 (such as paper towels). • Vary the number of groups each time, and ask your child for the total number of items.

~fj •• ••• • • • •

Dear Parents/Guardians, We learned counting money in dollars and cents. Help your child make sense of money by trying out these activities at home!

~o •••••••••

• • •••

It's time to hand over your wallet or purse to your child! • Ask your child to count the amount of money in your wallet or purse in dollars and cents. • Prompt him or her to say, for example, "There are twenty-six dollars and eighty-five cents." • Next, ask your child a series of questions, depending on the kind of bills and coins available in the wallet or purse. Highlight to your child that a nickel is 5¢ and a quarter is 25¢. - "How many quarters can be changed for \$1 ?" - "How many nickels can be changed for 50¢?" - "How many five-dollar bills can be changed for 3 ten-dollar bills?"

• At the breakfast table, take what your child is having for breakfast, for example, waffles, pancakes or bread, and cut it into halves and fourths. • Highlight to your child that the whole must be divided into equal parts to make these fractions.

• Cut some also into thirds, fifths and other equal proportions. • Pull out one piece of each food item and ask your child what fraction of the whole it shows. • Ask your child to identify which piece does not show a fraction.

~fa ••••••••

• ••••

• Let your child make fractions by colouring the shapes on the next page! • Tell your child that each shape is divided into equal parts. • Ask your child to color a few parts of each shape. For example, ask your child to color 3 parts of the square. • Cut out all the shapes after your child has coloured a few parts of each. • Then, ask him or her to write on the back of the shape, the fraction of the shape that is colored, i.e. ~ . • Next, prompt your child to say, "~ is 3 out of the 8 equal parts." • Do the same for the other shapes.

Make a simple picture graph with your child using some coins and stickers. • Place some pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters in a bag. Ensure that there is an even number of each type of coin. • Ask your child to identify the different types of coins in the bag. • Together with your child, draw a graph with the number of columns corresponding to the number of types of coins in the bag. • Next, ask your child to count each type of coin. • Give your child the stickers and tell him or her that each sticker stands for 2 coins. • Ask your child to place stickers on the graph to represent the number of each type of coins. • The graph should look similar to the one below, depending on the number of coins.
