Ensuring for variation when working towards mastery with greater depth
- varying the numbers e.g. the change to 5p ,15p, 20p, or varying the 80p cost more of the sandwich to 50p, 60p 70p and so on...
- varying the unknowns e.g. how much money did Ben give the shopkeeper or how much change did he receive?
- using the same structre and numbers but varying the context e.g. Ben could be buying comic books or baking cakes. You could even incorporate a topic or theme you're working on in other lessons.
