This workshops aim is to immerse and engage students with maths on a practical level. Getting them to understand that maths is everywhere we look.

This workshop will immerse students in maths in a practical way. Measuring stick, finding shapes throughout the farm, measuring ingredients and weighing animal feed are all practical ways that maths is used in everyday life. What better way to engage students with maths than by doing it in-situ?

Learning outcomes:
– Identifying different shapes and locating them around the farm.
– Using compass points and coordinates
– Estimating the number of shapes (biscuits) that can be cut from a certain amount of dough
– Use different types of scales to weigh out dry feed for animals
– Measuring with sticks
