Mathematical Harvest

Classes were challenged with mathematical madness and the impact maths has on the food we eat.

From using fruit and vegetables to count with; making up word problems using a part, part, whole model; to creating the Stonehenge structure or dancing a Mayan harvest tradition; we had it all. We even touched on how we should use more local produce, to cut down on pollution, rather than buying fruits from thousands of miles away, that have to be transported by air, sea or train. 

We have definitely been on a mathematical, harvest adventure with more yet to come at our Apple pressing session. I wonder how many apples we will press? Can you estimate?
