Real Life Problem Solving!

dscn0092

We have been having fun with linking our Maths skills to real life situations! One group has been using colour in squares as if they are planning how best to tile a floor!

Another group has “visited” Mr Wolf’s DIY shop and has been identifying the costs of building different types of homes for three little pigs and their mother. They have had to use ratios, measure area and use a squared plan just like real architects and project managers.

The final group have been looking at real roller coasters from around the world and have had to use a variety of calculations and data handling skills in order to present different facts.

We will be doing this on a regular basis, so, if you use maths in your line of work and would like to help us, please get in touch!
