Inspire Workshop Autumn 2011


On the 16th November parents were invited in to work with the children on a maths problem solving.  Each parent and child were given a plan of Maths Mansion



The task was to calculate the amount of carpet for each room and give a quote to the owners.  Children had to explain to parents how to calculate the perimeter of the rooms and the area.

Once the children had calculated the floor area they went onto a website which sold carpets and decided which carpet to buy for the mansion.

The winning company was........WATTS & CO - Well done Holly!

She quoted a very reasonable £3144 and calculated she would need 458 rolls of wallpaper.  We will be sending her quote to Maths Mansion and they will expect the carpets fitted and wallpaper pasted by Christmas!

Thank you to all the parents who attended and we look forward to working with you again in the near future!  Please have a look at our new website - we will keep you up to date with things going on!
