Sometimes the TV news brings great teaching opportunities.
Like Johnny Depp’s lack of obedience to Australia’s quarantine laws.
So, what have WE done?
We’ve created a maths worksheet that includes a problem or two about Johnny’s doggies. Yes, maths questions about something really topical, really funny, and really appealing to the very students you teach.
And that’s only ONE topic covered. There are heaps more!
Like the national Girl Guides’ Biscuit day fundraiser. And the Hamish Blake bikeride through some of Italy’s mountains, and Roger Federer being beaten by Aussie tennis star Nick Kyrgios.
Why NOT let kids see how maths works in everyday life?
