Maths Quiz

We held a maths quiz today in the hall to mark the end of Maths Week 2014. The teams were made up of children form 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class. The teams were from Ms. Sullivan’s class, Ms. Ferguson’s class, Ms. Roche’s class and Ms. Brennock’s class. It was great fun. Three teams had to compete in a tie-breaker round. In the end team number 12 were successful. Well done girls!

Maths Week Fun

We have been taking part this week in Maths Week. We have been sharing maths problems each morning with our Twitter pals  .

We also shared some maths jokes! 

Q: Why was the maths book so sad?

A: Because it had so many problems!

Interesting Maths Facts  (http://www.makemegenius.com/cool-facts/maths-interesting-and-amazing-facts)

The number 5 is pronounced as ‘Ha’ in Thai language. 555 is also used by some as slang for ‘HaHaHa’.

The word ‘hundrath’ in Old Norse (old language from where English language originated), from which word ‘hundred’ derives, meant not 100 but 120.

We also hope to take part in a Maths Quiz later in the week.
