Maths tasks this week

How many ways can you make 100? 

If I know 2 + 8 = 10 

then I know 

20 + 80  = 100

 

How many number bonds to 100 can you find? 

 

Challenge, can you find number bonds to 100 that are not just multiples of 10? 

e.g. 43 + 57 = 100

 

Use your tens and ones to help you with this challenge!!! 

 

  • Can you do this activity with money instead? Draw the coins to show the amounts you are adding. Make sure they are real coins. 
  • Write a number story to go with some of the number bonds.  
  • Show your additions on an unstructured number line.

Here are some more jobs for you to do based on this story: 

  • Write a diary entry as if you were the giant!
