Our whole school engaged fully in Maths Week this October. All of our classes completed some very interesting Maths projects. Many of them were integrated into our quest for a ‘Certificate of STEM Excellence’ award. Have a look at some of the pictures from our great work below.
Our senior infants in room 1 created some scary ‘2D alien shape monsters’.
Our Junior Infant men in Room 5 enjoyed a ‘maths trail’ around the school grounds.
Our Third Class boys in rooms 8 and 16 completed a traffic survey at different times of the school day. They analysed the type of vehicle (car, bus, bicycle, lorry, etc.) that passed the school gates and represented their results through bar charts.
Our Fifth Class men in Rooms 9 and 12 showed their technical proficiency by using iPads to complete a ‘Maths eyes’ project around the school grounds.
The Sixth Class boys completed a ‘school census’, which posed 15 questions to every class in the school, relating to things such as number of siblings, favourite subject, how we travel to school. The boys then used the data to compile a series of bar and pie charts, before analysing the data and coming up with a series of facts about our school, and the pupils in the school.
