Maths at home over the holidays
I encourage families to be mindful of maths in every day life and to embrace all opportunities to practise maths skills over the holidays. Have fun!!
Board games and Card games:- practice adding on, following rules and strategic thinking. Backgammon has been popular at school lately and requires adding two dice!!
Cooking and gardening:- using lots of measuring and reading of measurements on various tools and scales.
Time: Reading analogue and digital clocks. Reading timetables and calculating elapsed time. eg how long a movie goes for or how long the train will take, etc.
If you are traveling compare time zones and look at 24 hour time.
Puzzles:- jigsaws, tangrams, Sudoku
Money:- adding up money, calculating change and % discounts. If you are going overseas compare foreign currency and work out exchange rates and money equivalence in both currencies.
