## Reasoning/Problem Solving Maths Worksheets for Year 1 (age 5-6)

Reasoning about number, sorting and counting.

To build on the work done in Early Years children need to sort groups in various ways before counting the objects within the groups.

Counting a variety of things.

## Toyota recalls 1.85 million RAV4s, citing fire risk

Toyota is recalling more than 1.85 million RAV4 vehicles due to a loose battery problem that could increase the risk of fire when the car makes “forceful turns,” the company said in a news release Wednesday.

The recall will affect 2013-2018 model year RAV4s, Toyota said. Some of those vehicles, which are compact SUVs, may have replacement batteries that “have smaller top dimensions.” Toyota said that this small-top shape could make the batteries move “when the vehicle is driven with forceful turns” and “cause the positive battery terminal” to contact a clamp and short-circuit, raising the risk of fire.

The automaker is preparing a fix. “When the remedy is available, Toyota dealers will replace the battery hold-down clamp, battery tray, and positive terminal cover” at no cost, it added. The company will notify affected customers by late December.

52M air-bag inflaters could be recalled by U.S. auto regulators: What to know

The move comes after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in 2021 that it had received 11 complaints alleging fires on the left side of the RAV4 engine, which were not caused by car crashes. The majority of the events occurred “during driving conditions, with four taking place with the ignition off,” the agency said in a report .

In December 2020, one RAV4 owner reported leaving the vehicle in a parking lot with the ignition turned off, according to NHTSA. The driver returned after a few minutes to find the car on fire. “The fire appeared to originate in front of vehicle,” NHTSA wrote in a summary of the incident. Firefighters were called in, but the vehicle was a total loss.

In August 2020, an owner of a 2017 RAV4 hybrid said the vehicle was going at 50 miles per hour when warning messages began appearing on the dash screen and white smoke began emerging from under the hood. “Moments later flames were coming from the engine compartment,” according to an NHTSA report. The vehicle was destroyed during the incident. A Toyota spokesman said Thursday that the recall does not include hybrids, meaning this particular incident was not relevant to the recall.

The “overall number of vehicle fire allegations with the battery as the area of origin is larger than its peer population,” NHTSA wrote .

## ‘This isn’t right’: Victorian maths exam errors prompt apology to year 12 students

Education minister says two errors appeared in VCE maths exam despite ‘thorough vetting process’

• Get our morning and afternoon news emails , free app or daily news podcast

Thousands of year 12 students have received an apology from Victoria’s education minister after “unacceptable” errors were discovered in questions in a VCE maths exam.

Students completed the second paper of the general maths exam on Monday afternoon, with some noticing a typo in one question and a misplaced number in another.

On Tuesday, the education minister, Ben Carroll, conceded two errors appeared in the final exam despite a “thorough vetting process”.

He said he had spoken to the chief executive of the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA), Stephen Gniel, and an investigation would be conducted by into how the mistakes occurred.

“First and foremost, we know how stressful doing any exam is for our year 12s, and the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority and myself as the minister unreservedly apologise to the students and their families for what occurred,” Carroll said.

“It is unacceptable, given the checking and the vetting process, that there were two errors.”

Carroll, who is also the state’s deputy premier, said no students would be unfairly affected by the mistakes, which were largely in the formatting of the exam.

He said the first error, which was picked up before the exam, was an extra “of” in a preamble to part D of question 14. Due to the paper’s formatting, the preamble appeared to be part of an earlier question but was in fact the introduction to a new question.

Students were told to cross out the extra “of” to avoid confusion.

The second error was another typo in part D of question nine, related to a matrix, which incorrectly included two 1s in a column. The mistake was discovered after the exam ended.

“One error was picked up before the mathematics exam was undertaken but it was deemed too late to do the reprinting of that exam,” Carroll said.

“Then there was a second error that occurred in a matrix that’s part of the exam. Students were instructed on the day to very clearly amend their sheet on the day of the examination but the second error wasn’t picked up.

“I want to reassure students and their families that they will not be impacted by this error. It will have no bearing on their marks.”

The mistakes came less than a year after Monash University’s Prof Burkard Polster and Dr Marty Ross wrote a critique of the VCE exams. They said they had identified “major mathematical errors” in past exams, including five in the 2022 specialist and mathematical methods papers.

“Every specialist mathematics and mathematical methods exam that we have seen is marred by at least minor mathematical problems, and most exams contains at least one major error,” they wrote.

An online maths educator, known as MaffsGuru , wrote on social media that Monday’s exam was “different from other years” and “much harder” than the previous general maths paper completed by students on Friday.

“I think question 13 was written by the devil himself,” he wrote. “Other parts were just time-consuming. It was different from other years. Not helped by the mistake in the matrix question!”

MaffsGuru said the second error was a “much bigger mistake” than the inclusion of an extra “of”.

“This isn’t right!” he posted.

Students across Victoria were left reeling after completing the exam, taking to social media to complain about its difficulty.

Carroll said the errors on the general maths paper were believed to be an isolated incident, with no other exams containing mistakes.

He said the government would “strengthen the integrity of the process and get to the bottom of how this occurred, given it did go through a thorough vetting process”.

Exams will continue in Victoria until 15 November.

Because flying is cool

## Mental Math for Pilots updated

Aviation Supplies & Academics (ASA) has released the third edition of “ Mental Math for Pilots ” by Ronald D. McElroy.

The book helps sharpen pilot math skills for a job interview and in the cockpit with tips for figuring math problems without paper or a calculator, according to ASA officials.

The book shares the “tricks of the trade” for the areas where pilots have traditionally needed to sharpen their mental math skills, such as fuel planning, temperature conversions, reciprocal headings, turn radius, crosswind components, time-speed-distance problems, calculating true airspeed, the 60-to-1 rule, and many others, company officials said.

The softcover book is available now for \$24.95 while the eBook is \$19.95.
