Counting in 2s

Date: 28th Feb 2018 @ 1:00pm

In maths this morning the children were told to take their shoes off and put them in the middle of  the carpet. 

They were told that they had to work together to count the shoes, what was the quickest and easiest way to count the shoes? We tried counting them one by one but that took too long. What other ways could we count the shoes?

Then we realised we could count them in 2s because we each had two shoes or a pair. 

We then discussed what would happen if we started on an odd number, would we land on an even number? No. 


We we had great fun being magic mathematicians.
