Thinking Outside The Box
Closing Date 23 March 2018
Grade 2: Maths Monster (Open-Ended Numeracy) - Starting 30 April 2018
What would it be like if the Maths Monster was EVERYWHERE? If the only way to keep the Maths Monster away was to make up and answer heaps of maths questions? You might make up questions like: How long does it take to get ready for school if it takes 10 minutes to get dressed, 15 for breakfast and 5 to brush your teeth? And how many cars do you see on the way to school if you see 7 red ones, 4 blue ones and 9 white ones? OH, NO! What if one of them is a truck? Then if the teacher puts everyone into 5 groups of 4, how many children are there? What if two children are away? How many groups could you have then? If the answer to a question is ‘6 ice-creams’, what could the question be?
When you come to this program you will help to defeat the Maths Monster. The only way is to make up and answer as many maths questions as you can. There’ll be a new theme each week. After a while the Maths Monster will begin to get tired. Can you help defeat him before the end of the term? Let’s hope so!
