Practical Ideas to Make Maths Fun - Grade 4 - 7
With Educator and Facilitator, Anne Burger
In this second Maths webinar we look at ways of making this very abstract subject more relevant to a child’s everyday life. Children often ask the question “Where or when will I ever use this in my life?”

Topics included will be:-
- Using the Guinness Book of Records for number operations

- Waffle Day activity
