Special interest group: Rua Tekau

Today we looked at Maths all around us and came up with a list of what we saw, we will add to this list.

We discussed how we measure different objects for volume and mass. Cubic metres was a new term for our group. 

We discussed what we like people to say and do when working in our maths groups. 
Key ideas:
Talking together, being listened to, recognising our strategies, giving hints or tips but not the actual answer. Giving build ups. 
These will be our group rules during maths time. 

We also recognised everyone learns differently and sees patterns differently. 
(The dot card visual task). 
If shown this for three seconds, how do know how many dots there are? 

We were also given a problem to work in our groups.

  1. I was the first person to get the answer it was 7 x 3 + 5 + 3 + 1 + 1 + 3 + 3 = 37
