Maths 2019
1. Maths Trails
This year we updated our maths trails around the school.
We measured all our rooms and the playground in steps and in metres. See the maths trail we used for Junior and Senior Infants here. 

Sample work from Math Trail
NUMBER  Adding Doors
Problem: Painter needs to plan for painting the school doors
Solution: Add the total number of doors so he can work out how much paint is needed
We worked in pairs to calculate the number of doors in the school.
Firstly, we added classroom doors, then the other doors in the corridor.
SHAPE  Rocket Challenge
We designed our very own space rockets, using rectangles and triangles! It was fun.
