Learning Intention:We are learning to solve problems.

Success Criteria:I am successful when I can answer the problems correctly and explain my strategy's.

1.Johnny had some DVDs.

He put them into 5 stacks of 6.
How many DVDs does he have now?

(30) I know its 30 because 5×6=30.

5+5+5=15 and 5+5+5=15 so 15+15=30.

2.Sid was collecting plum from his trees.

On Monday, he collected 4 plums.On Tuesday he collected
twice as many plums on Tuesday.On Wednesday he got
twice as Tuesday. If this pattern continued how many 
plums does he has on Thursday.

 I know its 32 because 8+8=16 another 8+8=16 so 

16+16=32. 8×4=32. 32÷4=8   4+4=8; so 8+8=16 then 
16+16=32, another  4×2=8 8×2=16 and 16×2= 32

3.There are six netball teams in the local inter-school netball tournament. 

During the tournament, they all need to play each other once.
How many matches will be played altogether?
I know its 36 because 6×6=36. 
6,12,18,24,30 and 36.
30÷6=6, another way 6+6=12, 12+12=24 so 24+12=36.
