Celebrate mathematics and the skills it takes to persevere when solving problems!
Going forward the Math Question of the week will be available for students to pick up outside the office in paper format. Students can then work on the problem and hand in their solutions independently. Of course, we always want to get parents & guardians involved whenever possible so I will endeavour to post the weekly problems via the blog as we did in 2017.
We are planning a “Math Day” – official name to still be decided for March 8th. Details of the celebration are still to come. If you would like to get involved please contact School Council Chairs Alan Findlay or Damion Ketchum. You can connect through our school website.
This week’s questions are:
In Ms. Banfai’s class, Jackson is lined up to get some pie. He is 8th from the back of the line and 12th from the front of the line. How many students are lined up for pie? If each pie is cut up in 8 pieces, how many pies are needed?
