Maths Class Update Term 4 Week 2

For World Book Day, the Maths department chose the book Holes by Louis Sachar.

The book is about teenagers at a detention centre digging holes for the warden who is looking for treasure. We used computer games from the NRICH website which provides resources focusing on problem-solving, building core mathematical reasoning and strategic thinking skills. We also had paper based mathematical treasure hunt.

  1. Yr 11 Student competing against the Vice Principal to find a strategy that will locate the treasure in the minimum number of guesses using coordinates.
  2. Yr 10 enjoyed reading the book Holes by Louis Sachar so much she wanted to tell her classmates all about it.
  3. Yr 7 Solving clues on a mathematical treasure hunt.
  4. Yr 8 student having fun locating treasure by using strategies to find it in the minimum number of guesses using coordinates.
