Up2d8 maths

Up2d8 maths is a completely new and exciting feature. It aims to provide ideas to develop with your class based around topical news items or with a seasonal theme. Problems are presented on a PowerPoint using real life scenarios which the children are encouraged to discuss and then find evidence from which to draw conclusions.

Recently Sandbach, a town in Cheshire, put up distance signs in metric measures instead of imperial. The town’s people had mixed feelings about this. Some were outraged and others were accepting. The children are asked to consider whether we should use imperial measures, metric or both. There is also a focus for discussion on the recent story of a lady who faces prosecution in January 2009 for trading in east London using imperial scales. This presentation opens up many opportunities for exploring imperial and metric measures in the classroom practically and through word problem solving.
