IMG_0041Wow – How cool is Maths! Today we were examining informal measurement and how we can use a range of units to measure things.
We used cubits – hand-spans, – steps – body-lengths and arm spans to measure a range of objects.
The Learning Intention was to use Habits of Mind to help us perform these measuring tasks such a s Persistence and Applying knowledge.
Ebony –I learned that body parts can also measure.
Nick – I learned that the 24 people cover 3/4 of the oval – We used doubled armed hand spans called the albatross!
Olivia – I learnt that my tree was 17 handspans.
James – I learned that it took 185 steps around the track and it was quite interesting.
Mia – different people have different amounts.
