Mini Metric Olympics

Students in Grade 4 are studying metric measurement in math class with Mrs. Tappert and Mrs. Finlay. Yesterday afternoon, they participated in the Mini Metric Olympics.


Students rotated through seven stations where they completed a task and estimated and measured results in metric units. Stations were: Cotton Ball Shot Put, Marble Grab, Sponge Squeeze, Big Foot, Crab Crawl, Paper Plate Discus and Straw Javelin Throw. What a great hands-on way to learn math! Enjoy this slideshow of the afternoon!

Apps in Education: Cool Maths apps for kids

Apps in Education: Cool Maths apps for kids | Technology in Education |

Maths Apps are the ones most frequently searched for on this site. I sometimes think that if I had some of these apps I would have taken a greater interest in Maths as a kid. It was not that I was disinterested I just missed some of the basics. With some of these game based apps at least students can be engaged long enough to discovery some of the basic maths concepts.

Thanks Greg!
