### How To Do KS2 Maths A SATs Negative Number Questions

1. 1. How To Do KS2 Maths SATs Type Questions (Paper A – Calculator Not Allowed) Negative Numbers 1: Continuing A Sequence For more maths help & free games related to this, visit: www.makemymathsbetter.com
2. 2. In a SATs Paper A you might be asked to continue a sequence that uses negative numbers:
3. 3. For example: Amy makes a sequence of numbers starting with 350 She subtracts 150 each time. Write the next 2 numbers in Amy’s sequence. 350 200 50
4. 4. For example: Amy makes a sequence of numbers starting with 350 She subtracts 150 each time. Write the next 2 numbers in Amy’s sequence. 350 200 50 To work out the next number in the sequence you need to take away 50 to get to zero
5. 5. For example: Amy makes a sequence of numbers starting with 350 She subtracts 150 each time. Write the next 2 numbers in Amy’s sequence. 350 200 50 To work out the next number in the sequence you need to take away 50 to get to zero and then another 100 to take you to -100
6. 6. For example: Amy makes a sequence of numbers starting with 350 She subtracts 150 each time. Write the next 2 numbers in Amy’s sequence. 350 200 50 -100 To work out the next number in the sequence you need to take away 50 to get to zero and then another 100 to take you to -100
7. 7. For example: Amy makes a sequence of numbers starting with 350 She subtracts 150 each time. Write the next 2 numbers in Amy’s sequence. 350 200 50 -100 To work out the next number in the sequence you need to take away 50 to get to zero and then another 100 to take you to -100 From there you subtract a further 150 to take you to -250
8. 8. For example: Amy makes a sequence of numbers starting with 350 She subtracts 150 each time. Write the next 2 numbers in Amy’s sequence. 350 200 50 -100 -250 To work out the next number in the sequence you need to take away 50 to get to zero and then another 100 to take you to -100 From there you subtract a further 150 to take you to -250
9. 9. Example 2: Katy makes a sequence of numbers starting with 200 She subtracts 75 each time. Write the next 2 numbers in Katy’s sequence. 200 125 50
10. 10. Example 2: Katy makes a sequence of numbers starting with 200 She subtracts 75 each time. Write the next 2 numbers in Katy’s sequence. 200 125 50 To work out the next number in the sequence you need to take away 50 to get to zero
11. 11. Example 2: Katy makes a sequence of numbers starting with 200 She subtracts 75 each time. Write the next 2 numbers in Katy’s sequence. 200 125 50 To work out the next number in the sequence you need to take away 50 to get to zero and then another 25 to take you to -25
12. 12. Example 2: Katy makes a sequence of numbers starting with 200 She subtracts 75 each time. Write the next 2 numbers in Katy’s sequence. 200 125 50 -25 To work out the next number in the sequence you need to take away 50 to get to zero and then another 25 to take you to -25
13. 13. Example 2: Katy makes a sequence of numbers starting with 200 She subtracts 75 each time. Write the next 2 numbers in Katy’s sequence. 200 125 50 -25 To work out the next number in the sequence you need to take away 50 to get to zero and then another 25 to take you to -25 From there you subtract a further 75 to take you to -100
14. 14. Example 2: Katy makes a sequence of numbers starting with 200 She subtracts 75 each time. Write the next 2 numbers in Katy’s sequence. 200 125 50 -25 -100 To work out the next number in the sequence you need to take away 50 to get to zero and then another 25 to take you to -25 From there you subtract a further 75 to take you to -100
