https://my.cjfallon.ie/dashboard/student-resources/?levels=0&classes=0&subjects=0&serieses=0&booktitles=0&types%5B0%5D=Book+Sample 

Primary > 5th class > Maths > Mathemagic> Mathemagic 5 > Online Book.  

Please complete all the questions in this chapter. Work at your own pace.  

Tips to remember:  

  • 1kg = 1000g     1/2kg = 500g     1/4kg = 250g   3/4k= 750g  
  • If there are 1000g in a kilogram each gram is equal to 1 thousandth of a kilogram. 1g = 1/1000kg  
  • When adding/ subtracting/ multiplying/ dividing ensure all measures are written in the same form.  

We cannot do the following: 5.685kg + 6758g + 4kg 286g =? 

Change all to the same form and then add. 5685g + 6758g + 4268g = ? 

  • Remember order of operations. Complete any work inside brackets first.

So Much for Secret Powers:  

Early last Tuesday I found I could fly,  

So I jumped off our roof and looped loops in the sky.  

Not a soul was astonished or impressed–  

They just called out loudly, “Come down and get dressed”.  

 

Departing for school on the following morning 

I turned into triplets without any warning.  

But no one was awestruck or taken aback –  

Mum simply observed, “That’s three lunches to pack.” 

 

While doing homework, succumbing to rage,  

I drew a live creature that hopped off the page.  

The only reaction from Dad was a mutter 

Od, “darn! There’s a dinosaur licking the butter”.  

 

At night, after dinner, my teeth all turned gold.  

So I yelled at my parents, “I’ve got gold teeth! Behold!” 

They barely glanced up from the Tv and said,  

“Just make sure you brush them each night, before bed”.  

But on Thursday, at breakfast, at last they took note.  

Dad stopped pouring coffee and Mum cleared her throat.  

“How strange”, they both murmured, “how curious, how weird-  

Vicki, don’t go to school till you shave off your bread”.
