We are solving puzzles as part of our Maths Week activities. Here is the puzzle we worked on today:
A zoo has several ostriches and several giraffes. Between them they have 30 eyes and 44 legs.
How many of each animal does the zoo have?
Children who return a correct answer to Room 11 before Friday will receive stamps.
Junior Infants had a really great time preparing our maths project and science experiment for St. Edward’s Maths and Science Afternoon. We also really enjoyed visiting the fair and would like to say thank you to all the other classes for sharing their maths and science projects with us, we learned a lot in one afternoon. We hope all our parents enjoyed their visit as well.
During Maths Week in 4th class we did a maths trail in the school and out around the school grounds. We had to work in groups to answer maths questions. We had to estimate, count, measure, identify shapes and lines and find other information around the school. We all enjoyed the maths trail it was a lot of fun!
During maths week, 6th class went to the IT track to improve their skills of estimating distances.
They also timed themselves walking 400 metres, which is once around the track on the inside lane.
So two and half times around the track is equal to walking a kilometre.
Ms Kivlehan had told them there was a challenge coming up as part of Active Schools Week to walk a mile. So they had to figure out how to convert from km to miles.
One mile is equal to 1.6km.
So 6th class worked out that walking 4 times around the track is equal to walking one mile. Do you agree with them?
