Reasoning in Maths

posted in: Year Four News | 0

Year 4 were lucky to have Mr Crook (a Maths specialist) to visit last week. We learnt about reasoning in Maths, using Cuisenaire rods. Focusing on fractions, we had to find all possible whole and half pieces. We had to justify our choices and explain how we knew that we had found all possibilities. We used multiplicative and additive reasoning to help us. Once we had had a go at halves, we moved onto quarters, sevenths and ninths. We had lots of fun.
