MATHS WEEK ACTIVITIES
Help get Maths on the Map
A new initiative from Maths Week is to build a maths map. That is a map that will show places of mathematical interest. We are looking for schools and the public to mark up any relevant places in their area or that they visit. This could include a place where there is a maths activity (such as a maths trail) /where maths is done (such as a university maths department) / birthplace of a famous mathematician / something in the built or natural environment with mathematical significance.

3rd class went on a maths trail around Tubbercurry, Sligo. We used our Maths Eyes to see Maths in our Environment. We saw maths everywhere  appointment times, prices, distances, shapes. It was a great day
