Students are required to have a go at the first two maths problems.

It is important they clearly show their mathematical thinking, as this is a focus in our maths sessions at the moment.

For those who would like an extra challenge, they should also have a go at the extension activities.

Activity 1. Find the greatest common factor of 24, 40 and 60.

Activity 2. 2,700 people visit a cinema in one day. About one third of the visitors are children, the rest are adults. Ticket prices are: Adults: $9.80 and Children: $5.40
Use rounding to estimate how much money the cinema took on that day.
