Discussion points for teachers
1. How many metres does the fence need to be moved so that both animals have the same amount of room?
Discuss which method would be best to work out the answer. Does a ‘trial and error’ method work better than a calculation?
350 – 100 = 200 and 150 + 100 = 250. The fence needs to be moved by 100m.
2. How many nuts and bolts are on the fence in total?
Discuss whether all the information given is relevant for the answer.
744 + 100 + 100 = 944
3. Do they have enough money saved to fix all the fences?
Discuss which method has been used to work out the answer.
579 + 100 – 400 + 300 – 100 + 200 – 400 = 279 (yes, they have enough money)
4. How many tickets were sold?
