Maths Week fun proves a real plus
Children get their heads together during a Maths Week exercise at Noblehill Primary Girl ponders the answer to one of the questions
Noblehill Primary pupils gave their brains a good workout when they celebrated Maths Week Scotland.
The nationwide project aims to raise awareness of numbers in pupils’ daily lives and the environment around them.
Kids took part in a range of indoor and outdoor learning experiences, problemsolving activities, number hunts and tower-building.
Art and PE teachers incorporated numbers into their lessons , while some classes enjoyed a Lego programming workshop.
That gave them experience in building and programming creatures which could move using motors, gears and wheels.
The senior classes devised maths games which they used with the younger children.
The school also took the chance to launch Sumdog, an IT-based number programme for P3 to P7, making learning fun and interactive at school and at home.
A school spokesman said: “Staff and pupils alike loved solving puzzles outdoors and taking part in lots of different maths activities.” These pupils jot down their total in one of the maths games
