It’s Maths Week Scotland!

This week is Maths Week Scotland. P7B tried out the Edinburgh University School of Maths challenge this morning. We learnt about Richard, a video game programmer, who uses maths in his job every day. He set us a challenge to work out how many security cameras would be needed in rooms of different shapes. You can try the task by clicking on this link Security Camera Challenge.

There are so many more activities and tasks you can try out on the Maths Week Scotland website just click here and explore.
