Year 9 Maths Enrichment Day

As part of the January Enrichment Day Year 9 Elm students took part in a rotation of Maths activities to challenge their skills, and get them thinking differently about Maths.

As part of the 'Lobster Pot Challenge', students were challenged to make the most money from their virtual businesses. They had to make predictions, and speculations to invest their money in on or off shore pots, buy more stock and remember to pay their rents. The students were really engaged in the activity and their were some fantastic questions happening about how business worked, and some great mental maths and strategic discussions happening.

    

The students were also introduced to some 'Magic Maths', mathematical process and equations that can be manipulted to always give a certain answer. As well as being astounded by a number of these examples the students worked through how the Maths behind them  actually works.

Have a go at this example.

    

Students also challenged their mental skills in a Maths treasure hunt, and created some mathematical art using their knowledge of tesselation.
