Today we went on a Maths Trail around our village – Siggiewi. We worked in small groups. We each had a clip-board. We had to estimate, count and measure different things around Siggiewi. We really enjoyed ourselves and learned that Maths is all around us!
A Maths trail:
encourages us to seek out the Mathematics in our environment
introduces us children to the wonder of Mathematics;
helps us to observe our village from a different viewpoint;
encourages us to see how Mathematics is used by man to interpret the world in which we live;
brings about an appreciation of the interrelationships between Mathematics and nature;
(A small note to my ‘parrots’ who had their cameras with them today … save photos on a pendrive or send them to me by email please. Thanks
