Maths in Real Life

Chestnut class have been applying their knowledge of perimeter to real life problems. Today we investigated the perimeter of the school field. First we made our predictions of the perimeter of the field. We then worked in small groups and used a trundle wheel to find the distance around the edge of the field. To make our investigation a first test, we decided we should do this three times. After we had done this, we found the mean distance around the edge of the field and compared this to our original predictions.
