Cargilfield Mathematics ‘Patter’

There can be many different names for the same operation or calculation in Mathematics, and this can lead to confusion or even anxiety. The quick guide below details some of the more common methods used in Mathematics lessons in the Upper School, and the names by which they are known.

1. ‘Hats’ (^) and ‘Hops’

    • The hats method is used to multiply decimals.
    • - A hat sign ^ is placed above each digit after the decimal point (and the number of hats noted in brackets).
    • - The decimal points are removed and the numbers are multiplied.
    • - The answer is written down and correct number of hats placed back on top of the digits, working from the right.
    • - The final answer is written without hats.

    Untitled1

    • The hops method is used to divide by decimals.

    Example: 3.13 ÷ 0.02

      

    The decimal point hops two to the right in both numbers, giving 313 ÷ 2.

                              

    rightColBody
    1. 2. ‘Bus stop’ division

    The bus stop method is a simple way to divide; the name refers to the lines drawn in front of and on top of the number to be divided, which form the shape of a bus stop.

    Untitled1

    1. 3. ‘Piggy-back’ division

    To divide by larger numbers, the children are encouraged to use factor pairs.

    Example: 10134 ÷ 18

    The number 10134 would be divided by a pair of factors (3 and 6) which, multiplied, give the product 18 (2 and 9 could also be used).

    Untitled

    1. 4. Napier Bones

    A grid method (named after the 16th century Edinburgh mathematician John Napier) is used for long multiplication.

    Complete the multiplication grid square, then add the columns diagonally, beginning at the bottom right, to get the final answer.

      The U12 hockey team headed over to Stewart's Melville for their annual P7 tournament along with Fettes, Loretto, George Watson's College, Edinburgh Academy and George Heriot's.  The very warm February sunshine made for a glorious afternoon for those watching, whilst those playing needed lots of water to get them through all their matches.  After the pool games, we played Fettes in the Final and fully deserved to bring home the trophy this year after playing some terrific hockey throughout the day.

      Very well done indeed, boys! Champions!

      Cargilfield 14     Fettes 1

      The girls enjoyed a good game in the sunshine on the Harper Gow astro. They dominated the game but Fettes gave a good fight and managed to steal the ball a lot due to the girls no looking for who was available for a pass or just because they were taking too long to decide. We swapped positions during the different quarters to give the girls a chance to play on different sides of the pitch. We had some impressive goals from Anna, Valentina and Amenah. Overall, Charlotte who was the team captain deserves the player of the match title.

      Well done, girls.

      U11A Netball vs. St Mary’s

      U11A’s have an unbeaten record, except one team St. Mary’s! So this week the girls were determined in their rematch not to be beaten. We came out and played an incredible first half, Clara (player of the match) was particularly strong at intercepting balls and Katinka managed to get into great space. All the girls marked their players tightly and managed to constantly intercept their play. In particular Issy who had a strong goal shoot to mark. Clemmie got around her marker and scored consistently. The first half score was 6-2. But St. Mary’s responded well in the second half and started to equalise. With strong team work we managed to draw 10 all.

      U11A Netball vs. Loretto

      Playing back to back matches the girls were fatigued in the first half of the match. Although Josephine and Vanetia helped move the ball up the court the sun was in the eyes of our shooters and the first half score was 3-2. However after a half time break the team picked up their movement and managed to get the ball down court to Poppy (captain, player of the match) who shot some fantastic shots from near to the edge of the D to secure us a win of 11-5. Excellent play this week ready for our U11 netball tour.

      This was our second fixture against Fettes, playing outside this time, and it was interesting to see how much all the girls from both schools had improved.

      Cargilfield A 15 Fettes 2.

      The A team played first and I was delighted with the quick passing from Lucy, Maddie and Esme delivering the ball into the circle for Esme and Izzy to shoot on goal. Our positioning and awareness in the shooting circle was much improved since the January game and we quickly scored three gaols. I was pleased at how creative the girls were using Maddie at centre and Lucy at Wing attack to get the ball into improved shooting positions. This was very important as the Fettes GD was very tall and her hands were able to block many shots. So we had to pass and shoot quickly. Amalia and Tessa also worked well as GD and GK and Fettes were only able to score one goal. I advised the girls to try to take the ball wide in the next quarter, rather than playing up the middle. We tried to do this and Maddie was particularly mobile and got the ball moving quickly. We had an excellent second quarter scoring five further goals. Whilst Fettes were defending and passing well, we just kept on pushing with clear determination. The final quarters were a little quieter. Bea came on as WD and Savannah came back on in the final quarter, this time substituting for Lucy and she was able to continue Lucy’s excellent work, intercepting well and making good passing decisions. It was a superb team effort and a well-deserved win. We finished with four goals in the last quarter, the very last goal being set up as a clever bounce pass to Esme to avoid the tall GD. Good thinking, Izzy. The whole game showed just how well the girls’ strategic play is developing. Well done!

      Final score Cargilfield A 15 Fettes 2.

      The B Team also had a successful game beating Fettes 7-1. Well done, Cargilfield! Report to follow.

      Fettes: Won 4-1

      Belhaven: Won 6-0

      On a gorgeous February afternoon, the boys travelled to Fettes to take on both Fettes and Belhaven in a round-robin. Overall, I was very pleased with how the boys handled themselves in the two matches. On the attacking front, they attacked quickly as a unit and generally passed well between each other. They played quickly and dominated possession. Their finishing is improving each match they play. An area to improve on for next week, which we will also work on in training, is using the space, passing wide and driving up the wings before crossing the ball. In defence, we are solid in the tackle and much improved at clearing the ball away from the D. An area that we need to improve on is our marking off the opposition; against stronger opposition we would have let in quite a few more goals. This defensive marking starts with the attack and midfield from 16’s and then finishes with the defenders man-marking an attacking opposition. If we can consistently do this in each match, we will be a very strong hockey side.

      Well done, boys!

      The sun was actually blazing down as we took to the court for our first match against Loretto. Issy took control directing play from the Centre and our shooters. Laura and Clemmie worked well together and Saphira was on hand to take a pass back and feed it back in. Ob the wings Flora and Alannahs court coverage was amazing and they were well supported by our defence. We dominated this game from the start and ended with an impressive result.

      Final score Cargilfield 10, Loretto 2

      We were aware from our last fixture that St Mary's were possibly a more formidable opposition and although we were tired having just played against Loretto we hit st marys hard. The girls were supeeb and this was probably the best netball I have seen them play all term. By the end of the first half we were 7-1 ahead. However, in the second half we bagan to tire. St Mary's were relentless in their attack and despite the best efforts of Calia, Rosanna and Flora the steadily equalled the score.

      Final score 8 all draw

      1st Netball v St Mary’s and Loretto

      The 1st girls had a fun afternoon playing a triangular match against St Mary’s and Loretto. Our first match was against Loretto who opened the scoring first. We soon fought back and Amy and Amelia’s shooting in particular, was impressive to watch. With the score at 9-4 at half time, the girls started to pull away as the minutes progressed and we were just that bit too strong for the Loretto girls.

      Cargilfield 21 Loretto 4

      We played St Mary’s next who we had lost to earlier in the season. This game was always going to be a close one and the girls were really up for a good match. They certainly did not disappoint. The game flowed from end to end with both teams scoring on their centre pass. St Mary’s nudged ahead at half time leading 6-5. Our girls were chomping at the bit to win the match and no one could put a foot wrong in the second half. Flora and Emma worked particularly hard in defence and intercepted some really tricky balls. Again, Amelia and Amy scored every time they shot and Katie, Ellie and Sophie linked well, finding space and getting the ball through to the shooters. Catherine came on at half time and it was great to see her stand her ground against some very strong St Mary’s girls. We pulled ahead and by the end, had a comfortable lead which meant the girls could enjoy playing some really high quality netball.
