From 11 to 15 March we have found mathematics in every corner of the school.
From the smallest of PK3 with the activity ‘One More Than’ we have gone through traditional mathematical games, geometric figures, programming, and coding, how to solve logical problems, the game of fractions, etc. We have seen how there are numbers all over and we have worked them from chess, mixing figures and lyrics, and even in the music!
Would you like to know curiosity? Surely you have already noticed that Roman numerals start counting from the ‘1’ and they did not have any symbol to represent the “0”. This happens because the Romans did not need the zero to have an additive and non-positional numbering system. That is to say, in the Roman numeral the numbers are added and always value the same, whereas in our current system the value of the numbers depends on the position in which the number is: it is not the same the value of “3” in the number “13” that in “3,500,000”, however, the “l” or the “D” is always the same.
Do you know how to solve this puzzle? The problem of the duck. A duck is on the edge of a lake. Next is a poster that says: BATHING NOT ALLOWED! What will he do to get into the water?
