We've students in Room 8 that have decided to enter the Wai-Maths video competition. Our idea has to be related towards Mathematics. Bradley's group of students ideas was to use the visitors to our class page to answer a question, record their students answer and compile them altogether.
What we would ask for from our visitors is to read the question and then record your students answer to the question! We're particularly keen to have an explanation of how your students (or yourself) solved the answer, and the strategy that they or you used!
If you could then send us the footage we'll compile it and therefore have a Mathematical question that has been answered by students all around the world!
Bradley has made a short video introducing himself and explaining the question which as follows:
8 men and 2 boys need to cross a river. They have a canoe which cannot carry more than 1 man or 2 boys at one time. How many river crossing does it take to get everyone across?
We'd like to thank Otewa School for being the first to help with this! See them solve this problem by clicking on this link, and check out their wonderful blog at the same time!
