Maths

Today’s focus in maths is doubling and halving. Doubling is adding the same number together twice eg.

Double 6  =    6 + 6 = 12     6  x 2  = 12

Halving  is the inverse so we divide  by 2

Halve of 12 =  12 ÷ 2 =6

Look at the ppt points below and have a go at one or two of the challenges attached.

Then test yourself on the Game Hit the Button Doubling and Halving.
