The school is participating in Maths Week Ireland for the first time. We want to get the pupils out of the classroom and see how maths is part of our everyday life.
Today, Monday we explored the school and grounds to find out why numbers are important. The pupils in pairs, had to compile a list of everyday items around the school that had numbers on them. In the end we had nearly 100 items, which astounded us all, items included whiteboard, light bulbs, best by dates, keyboards, measuring maths and science equipment, fire extinguisher, The Bible, an atlas, microscope, calendar, hopscotch, alarm, fuse box, meter box, food stuff, toaster, batteries, plaques, egg boxes, timers, cooker, kettle, computer leads, bar codes, clothing, radiator, clothing sizes, keys, receipts, hockey sticks and money.
