Wii did some Maths

08 Mar

As part of March Maths Matters Month we used Wii Golf to develop our skills at subtracting today.  Our task was to calculate the distance the ball had travelled by looking at the difference between the distance to the hole before and after a shot. So, it might have been the difference between 236 and 145 (236-145).   Add some similar word problems to this post for others to solve, as well as adding any other comments about the lesson.

    Hi i’m Charley from bure park school!
    I really like the idea of having a “March maths matters month!”
    And a wii!!!!!!!!
    We have got a wii aswell. We use our wii for literacy.
    (Newspaper reports.) We use a game called “Night at the museum 2” A man walks you through the museum and you have to compleat lots of challenges, but anyway we pretend we are newspaper reporters hidden in the museum!
    Everything comes ALIVE!!!!
    Hope you have lots of fun on your wii!!!

    Charley 🙂 🙂 🙂
