Pascal’s Triangle

Today we did some problem solving involving the Pascal’s triangle. We used a variety of problem solving strategies to solve the problems:

  • Act out the situation
  • Look for a pattern

We learned about triangular number, tetrahedron numbers and square based numbers.

We then learned ways to work out many real-life scenarios using the Pascal’s triangle. For example choosing a set number of books or balls from a pile. We were blown away!

Maths Games

Playing with the games we made for our Maths Week Scotland homework task and having fun along the way!

Money Advice Scotland

Today we had a special guest from Money Advice Scotland visit our classroom. She told us all about budgeting and we used this knowledge to plan a party for 20 people. We also took part in a money quiz!


Speed Distance and Time

Today in maths we were learning about speed, distance and time. We measured our track to find our distance of  90 metres. We then recorded 3 attempts  and worked out our average time. Finally we used this to work out our speed using the formula S=D/T.



We started our P7 Masterclasses today and were using our numeracy skills to plan a holiday for a family of 4. We were able to understand and explain the importance of budgeting when planning a holiday . We compared costs and choose what to purchase within our £800 budget!
