Book week and Maths
I love reading maths books to my students!! Here are some books we looked at during book week.
How much is a million? by David M. Schwarts takes you on journey to explore really big numbers. After reading the book, we practised reading numbers... up to a zillion!
Students were so excited to be able to read numbers with 15 digits.
Fibonacci's cows by Ray Galrin is about Ryan who has a special Maths assignement to do. He has only one day to solve the puzzle of Fibonacci's cows - otherwise he'll miss the biggest soccer match of the year!
I found some Fibonacci project in Amazing Math - Projects you can build yourself. We looked at the Fibonacci number pattern and linked it to nature and art. Some of the student work were amazing.
