Learning about Maths Language

Image result for maths banner
Today in Room 7 we explored language related to maths signs and symbols.

Room 7 children were split into 4 table groups where they were given a flower template with a Maths operation in the centre of the flower. In their groups children were to discuss collaboratively with their peers share what that symbol means, and write different words that relate to the symbol inside the flowers petals.

We then shared our thinking together as a class to see what different Maths language we had come up with.  It was really good to see all the children in Room 7 talking together and sharing their thinking together as a group.
