Problem-solving in First class

Children in First Class worked in groups of two and three to solve addition and subtraction problems. The children are learning about the different problem-solving strategies they can use to solve these problems. Children self-assessed their work. Great work today by the boys and girls! Marvelous Mathematicians!

Today, fourth class attended ‘Bubblz the Mathematical Entertainer’ from Bubbly Maths. The show was on in Mary Immaculate College and was funded by SFI (Science Foundation Ireland) and DES (Department of Education). The topics covered were shape, space, problem-solving and mathematical thinking. This was a STEM event. Activities involved giant balloon shapes and soap bubbles. The boys and girls had a fantastic day!
