Fordell School

The students and myself loved using the Track my Tanker resource - we come from a farming community so it was right up their alley. The students enjoyed watching the videos and learning and further developing their understanding about the milking process. They enjoyed getting the maps out and tracking the tanker they even came up with a shorter route for the driver. It was really cool how we were able to link our maths to real life context - this helped them to understand that maths is all around us. We have been busily prepping for our cow Olympics and are hopefully to have this completed by the end of the week - the kids have taken this quite seriously and a lot of planning has gone in as a result.
