##### Week beginning October 8th – Foundation to Year 2

**Making Longer, Making Shorter**

First, Ahmed used interlocking cubes to make a rod four cubes long:

- How many cubes did he need to make a rod twice the length of that one?
- How many cubes did he need to make one three times the length?
- How many cubes did he need to make one four times the length?
- How many cubes did he need to make a rod half the length of his first one?
- How many cubes did he need to make a rod a quarter of the length of his first one?

**These rods are the ones Ahmed made: **

- Which one is twice the length of Ahmed’s first rod?
- Which one is three times the length?
- Which one is four times the length?
- Which one is half the length of his first rod?
- Which one is a quarter of the length of his first rod?
- Which one is the same length as his first rod?

- How many cubes did he need to make a rod twice the length of that one? 4×2=8
- How many cubes did he need to make one three times the length? 4×3=12
- How many cubes did he need to make one four times the length? 4×4=16
- How many cubes did he need to make a rod half the length of his first one? 4÷2=2
- How many cubes did he need to make a rod a quarter of the length of his first one? 4÷4=1

- The first picture of blocks is equal to Ahmed’s
- The second is half of Ahmed’s blocks
- The third is a quarter
- The fourth is twice Ahmed’s blocks
- The fifth is three times Ahmed’s blocks
- The last one is four times Ahmed’s blocks
