Since this week is NZ Maths Week I thought I would create a Maths Shape challenge for our class. The idea is to see if you can find the different shapes around Russell Street School (There is 25 shapes in all).
All answers are due in on Friday and there will be a small reward for the winning person/team!
Below is a sample of some of the shapes. Do you know where they are?
Today in class we learnt about comparing and putting fractions in order of size.
What did we do? Well we cut a piece of paper into strips and made a whole lot of different fractions. From here we compared the sizes and looked at the different equivalent fractions. Below is an example!
Today for Maths Olivia took the Triangles group and cooked Pizza! Why did they make Pizza? Well in class we are learning about Fractions and this is a great way to make the learning practical and exciting!
In class for Maths we have been learning how to use Quiz Revolution to make a quiz. Quiz Revolution is a fantastic website that allows you to make quizzes for free! Check out this awesome quiz made by Aye!
If you are like me and you love Maths then you will really enjoy this website. It is called Bedtime Maths and every day is has a new maths problem for you to solve! It is really cool and we are going to start using it in class as well.
Every Friday in 3D we practice our Basic Facts for Maths. We always start with a few strategies on the board, a look at their test scores from the week before (On the computer), a warm up game of 4 Corners (Great little maths game!) then onto our 10 minute test.
During the week we have maths groups where we learn all our different maths strategies. Then Friday’s Basic Facts test is a chance to put some of these strategies into practice.
We have a Basic Facts ladder in class where the children move their name up or down after the test.
Throughout the year we have seen huge improvements and everyone can be proud of their efforts!
