Maths Homework – Week Beginning 28.8.17

Maths homework jotters will be given out in class tomorrow. The maths homework this week is a series of worded Maths problems. Please read each question carefully to ensure you know what is being asked of you and what operation you should use to solve it.

Please include all your working and also include a sentence answer. I will show the class examples of this in class tomorrow. Please complete these questions for Friday. If possible, could you also cover your Maths jotter. If you don’t have any paper, please let me know and I can provide some.

In future weeks Maths homework will be issued on Mondays and will be due in on Fridays.
