P5S – Maths Homework Group 1

Please read each question carefully so you understand fully what is being asked of you and the type of operation which should be used.

Each answer should show all workings and include a sentence answer. I will model how to do this in class on Monday. This task should be completed and returned to school by Friday. Your maths homework jotter will be issued in class on Monday.

Work It Out!
