Hands on Learning in Maths

Recently we have been consolidating our learning by working together, playing games and using different manipulatives. Below we investigated unit fractions using counters and were able to find some patterns when we started ordering fractions. Ask us how to order the following unit fractions from smallest to largest:

1/5, 1/10, 1/4, 1/8, 1/3 and 1/2

Here are some photos of us doing our investigation (click to enlarge):

Last Friday, on the 31st of March, we had some students from Room 16 join us. In maths we worked on our spatial awareness using shapes and our communication by playing barrier games with partners. We found out that this is a lot harder than it looks!

We have also recently been learning all about perimeter and area. Part of our learning in this area included being given a number of clues about the perimeter and area of three different rectangles. Solving the clues we created our own geometric art using the rectangles we had made. Take a look at some of our artwork below!

Finally, to review our knowledge on perimeter and area before we did an assessment on the subject, we ran a maths relay race! You can see some of the action below.
