WEEK 5

WEEK 5 MATHS CHALLENGE

We have lots of different numbers of balloons. However Mr Booth keeps popping half of them. We need to work out how many we have left ?

We have emailed Class 1 at Gipsey Bridge to ask for their help as we found this challenge really difficult. May be they have some ideas for us ?
Picture 1
'We had to work out half of 36. We tried to draw 36 balloons but we got confused. We decided to use cubes instead and shared them between the two of us. This meant we had half each which was 18 each.'
Picture 1
'I had 12 balloons. I drew 12. I knew that half meant it had to be the same so I crossed one off on one end but not on the other. I worked out that each half was 6 balloons.'
