October Maths Challenge: "The London Marathon"
This weekend is the London Marathon, to celebrate this we are going to link it to our maths challenge this month. Your task is to choose a marathon from around the world and discover some amazing number facts about it. Produce a poster to present your facts. Here are some ideas to get you started: Find out about distance in miles and then convert it into kilometres. Can you work out what that is in metres? What about centimetres? On average, how many steps does it take to complete the marathon? How many runners crossed the finish line? Can you compare that with the year before? Who finished fastest? What was the time? What was the difference between the fastest and slowest time? Who has the world record? What time did they run it in? Can you compare the time difference between the fastest male and the fastest female? Can you find out an unusual maths related fact? Bring your posters in by Monday 31st October (after half term).
September Maths Challenge: "Figure me out"
Your challenge is to create a poster designed around numbers to describe yourself. For example, your age, birthday or year, number of siblings or pets, number of years you’ve been at the school. Can you think of other maths facts about yourself? Cover each number with a Post-it note containing a number sentence that gives the answer to the number hidden below. The challenge is posted on Google Classroom with a link to a web page with examples to help you. Please bring your work in by Friday 30th September.
