Maths games….

In Maths each student in my class had to find a game, which we don’t need the internet for, to teach the class. I had to teach my game today!

My game is called 100 wins!

Need:

  • ·         2 -4 people
  • ·         2\3 dice
  • ·         Pen and paper

Instructions:

You roll 2 or 3 dice, depends on how good you are with multiplication, make a number ith the digits you rooled and write the number down.

Then you roll 1 dice and with the digit you got multiply the 2 numbers together. Eg 56×7=3 92

You get 10 points if you are correct and another 5 points if you were the first person to finish.  The first person to 50 wins!

 

If the multiplication is too easy for you do division instead. So say you roll 472 and then 8, divide 472 by 8 and the answer would be 59. Most of the time there probably will be a remainder.

World times!

This week in Maths we have been working on world times. We were split up in groups and had to find out how different people knew the time.

My group had to find out how the stone age recorded time!

The stone age!

The stone age was between 5 MYA. MYA stands for millions of years ago.

The Stone age people knew there were 365 days in a year by the position of the stars and planets. When a star or planet was in the same position as the first day of the year a whole year has passed.

When a day went by they put a stone down and at the end of a year they counted all the stones and the anwser was how many days were in a year.

Mum

I see you relaxing on your chair trying to figure out the answer of today’s crossword puzzle out of the paper. The T.V is on and every now and then you would look up to see the score in the tennis. Beside you is your book which has no bookmark inside so you must have finished.  

I see Dad come in and ask you for a coffee. The air conditioner is on and the sweat is pouring down your face. The door bell rings and you go to see who it is. It’s a stranger asking for directions. You navigate the person’s way to Dunkeld.  

I see you running on the tennis court to get the ball over the net. You are losing and the umpire says it was out but you know it was in.  You just lost and you look disappointed. I go and cheer you up. The smile on your face is growing.

 I see you on the side lines of the netball court cheering Emily and I on. You’re telling us to shoot. It’s a goal. The netball court is filled with excitement.  Mum, you are the greatest mum Emily, Tim and I could ever have.
