It’s been a busy term for the students who attend Carr Hill’s Maths Club each Wednesday. Students have faced many mathematical challenges- putting their logical thinking and problem solving abilities to the test.

 

Students have been tasked with working out if a lump sum of £1 million for a month would be more than if they started with 1p today but then it doubled every day for a month. They have also looked at drawing curves of pursuit which produced some interesting shapes. Pupils also used monopoly to develop budgeting skills- managing their budget and their properties and ensuring that they collected the rent for their owned properties.

 

The term ended with a festive theme as students made some origami santas which they have nominated staff to receive to say thank you for this term. This was followed by a Christmas quiz where students made up their own questions like the number of letters in the capital of France multiplied by the number of letters in the word Christmas.
