Numeracy

In Numeracy this term we have learnt about Financial Mathematics, Tessellations and 2D Shapes.

When learning about Financial Mathematics we created our own online shops to sell different items to people in our class. We had to keep an inventory of what we sold, how much it cost and how much change we gave back. It was challenging to add up all the items that people were buying from us and to calculate the right amount of change to give back.

We also learnt about the properties of different polygons. A polygon is a closed shape with 3 or more straight sides and angles. We challenged ourselves to fold and cut a rectangular piece of paper into as many different polygons as we could and then put the shape back together. What a tricky puzzle! But we did such a good job!
