In maths this week we have been practising multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000.
We went over how, when multiplying by 10, we move the digits one place to the left. When multiplying by 100, we move the digits two places to the left. Finally when multiplying by 1000 three places to the left. We then learned how, when dividing, we do similar but this time we move the digits to the right.
Your homework is to roll a dice three times to generate a three-digit number (e.g. 382) and multiply this number, first by 10 and then by 100 (e.g. 382 x 10 = 3, 820). Please repeat this five times so you end up with ten different sums (five where you multiply by 10, five where you multiply by 100).
Please then roll your dice five more times to create division sums (five where you divide the number by 10, five divided by 100).
