Feet-u-ring maths

This week the kids in POD 1 have been working through a Maths300 investigation about feet.
To begin the task our students brainstormed all the different times you might have bare feet.
The following was some of their suggestions:

  • getting into the bath
  • relaxing when you get home from school
  • swimming
  • surfing
  • in bed
  • when you wake up
  • at the beach
  • at the pool
  • in the shower

After this the children were tasked with creating a ‘person’ with bare feet. They spent a couple of sessions creating their person and developing a bio for their character. The kids chose names, clothes, identities and as you can see, they were very creative.

The buzz in the POD was amazing during the task with all the kids, teachers and support staff really getting into the task. Maths in POD 1 is a delight to witness and the learning and success the kids are experiencing is wonderful. Be sure to check back in a few days to see the great math calculations happening over the rest of the week.
