We had a great time celebrating Maths Week 2022 in 6th class and took parts in lots of fun activities!

We thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the Maths Week Mini Quiz with Franz
Schlindwein, on Zoom. There were lots of interesting questions and we practised the day before with some fun brain teasers – see if you can have a go here:

Do you know the answers?
Problem solving skills in practise!

Then we took part in a Maths trail in the school and yard areas, that involved putting our Maths skills to the test.

We split into groups and followed the instructions as accurately as possible.

The trail involved measuring, calculating area and perimeter, observing and tallying results of data collected, measuring and recording time and comparing results with other teams to determine accuracy!

    Wow, well done 6th class on all the effort you put into maths week. Can you tell me the answers to the questions please?

    Thanks Mr. Vance.
    My brainteaser was the one about cows and chickens, you need to read it very carefully:
    There are 30 cows, 28 chickens, how many didn’t?
    28 sounds the same as ‘twenty ate’! So the answer is 10!
    My class enjoyed it and couldn’t guess the right answer.

    9 + 5 = 2 when we’re talking about time!
    If it’s 9am and you add on 5 hours, then it’s 2pm or 14:00!

    If a farmer had 17 sheep and all BUT 9 ran away, then he still has 9! Lots of us got a little bit confused and answered ‘8’ because 17-9= 8!
