Maths Day!

Today Room 7 completed lots of maths with Mrs Tofa, Miss Stone and our guest maths teacher Mrs Pine.

Mrs Tofa's maths group went first and completed some multiplication problems.

Next Mrs Stones group undertook an investigation about happy numbers. To identify happy learners, Miss Stones maths group needed to square a number, then add the square of each of the answers digits.

E.g. 5 x 5 = 25.
(2 x5) + (5x5) = 35.
(3x3) + (5x5) = 36.

After morning tea (and a reading lesson) Mrs Pine came back to our class and taught all of Room 7. They worked on some mental maths problems that required the students to use a range of strategies and their times table knowledge.

What fabulous mathematicians we have in Room 7!
