Use estimation to check answers to calculations and determine, in the context of a problem, levels of accuracy.
Placing Calculations on a Number Line
Place the answer to calculations on a number line. An enormous array of choice. Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Ranging from adding numbers to 10 to multiplying 4 digit numbers. Great for combining teaching calculations and approximations with developing an understanding of place value.
This activity provides practice of the types of questions that appear in the Y6 Arithmetic test.
All questions are based on those that have appeared in the Year 6 Arithmetic tests from 2016-2018. We have not included questions that require a written method of calculation. There are hundreds of potential questions. Ideal for assessing gaps and progress.
Results can be saved and printed at the end of the test.
