Able mathematicians

Discussion in 'Primary' started by mossah, Jul 20, 2011.

  1. We have some very able mathematicians (G&T?) across the school and the proposal is that once a fortnight a working group of yr3 - yr 6 pupils will work with a teacher (me!) to explore and extend their maths knowledge.
    I have some ideas (measuring the school and grounds, including height of buildings, making a profit from an enterprise(cake stall), exploring patterns in nature) but wondered if any of you wonderful people out there had any good suggestions/websites (looking at nrich as a first step).
    Thanks in anticipation.

    CAke stall sounds like excellent idea - they could look at proportionality by upscaling recipes to make larger amounts, work out how many cakes could make from x bags of flour, do costings, market research leading to pie charts and graphs, calculate net and gross profit...
    Sorry, I know I haven't actually provided you with a new idea there!
    Could they work out who the 'average; person in the school is -hieght, eye colour, gender etc?
