Halving a square

Today we investigated edges and corners of squares that had been halved.
The challenge was to work in groups of four to create different pictures where the edges had to be the same size. Check out our excellent work.

Back in POD 1 – I missed you guys!

This year I am back working and learning with the students and teachers in POD 1 and it is very exciting.

One of the most amazing things I hear nearly everyday is students saying how ‘great they are at maths and counting!’

I’ve been watching and talking with the kids as they play some math games and explore maths and this has to be one of my favourite games. Kebab maths is a quick game and as you can see in the video below, the kids are very good at both playing the game and explaining whole and parts of numbers.

What is your favourite maths game? Let me know by commenting below. You could do this at home or with your class mates.
