Lachlan and Josh tell how they learnt about symmetry through painting.
We had a maths focus during Education Week. We thought about all the maths in our lunchboxes. We found lots of different things like the shapes of our sandwiches and fruit, fractions, the numbers on food packaging, the size of our food and money we could spend at the canteen. We discovered that there is maths everywhere.
Professor Maths came to our school. He was awesome. He had so many fun games for us to play. We worked in groups of four and moved around as many activities as we could. There were shape puzzles, addition fishing, addition ten pin bowling, jigsaws, mazes, cube building and lots more. We learnt to work as a team to solve problems. We discovered that the first answer is not always the best answer. Some of us were really good at not giving up. If we solved a really tricky puzzle we got to wear Professor Maths wigs.
