1. Altering numbers to make life easier. By Eleanor Stephens

2. Meet Ruby! This is Ruby, She knows everything there is to know about Maths! Make sure you look at her tips, they’re very useful!

3. First you look at your sum and see if there are any numbers that can be easily rounded. Then write down that you have rounded it, and remember to write what you added / took away. Do the sum with the new rounded numbers. Take / add to the answer the amount you added / took to make the sum easier. (It is called adjusting the answer.) Rounding can help… Ruby Says…

4. An example Change to £7 + Change to £5 = £7 + £5 = £12 I’ve added £0.01 to both numbers, so I need to take 2p from my answer. It’s easy to make a mistake carrying numbers so I’ll make the sum easier… £12 – 2p = £11.98

5. Thank you! Thanks forlooking at my slides, I hope you learned something!
