This week, the whole school has the same Creative homework: I can see maths all around me.
Maths is all around us. But, how often do we appreciate this? This homework is all about spotting maths in our everyday lives – we’re exposed to it more than we realise sometimes. We’d like children to find some examples of maths from their everyday lives and show these creatively. There are many examples of maths in the world around us but here are a few examples:
- travel, TV or film timetables
- measuring ingredients
- finding examples of shapes in buildings
- counting out objects
- spending money when shopping
- distances on road signs
- %s in sales
- cutting food into the correct amount of slices or pieces
Children should be ready to celebrate their learning in our weekly homework review in class by Thursday 03 October 2019. Please note: this homework should take no longer than 30 minutes.
