The Maths Trail
The Maths Trial was devised by a group
of Mums and teaching Assistants from the school. Over a series of meetings
and workshops they devised a splendid outdoor maths quiz. The children
are able to experience a maths lesson which is not only great fun but
really tests their problem solving abilities. There are well over a
dozen different mathematical problems dotted around the exterior of
the school and in the quad. The children can work their way round the
trail in groups attempting to solve problems such as:
Use bamboo sticks to
show a given time,
measure the circumference
of a tree,
Make a given number on the hopscotch,
do a sum on the number snake,
estimate which of 5 cups holds the
most water and check,
count the marked branches on the tree
measure the distance between the cones
with a 'metre trundle wheel'.
