Students in Years 1 to 4 at Cornerstone Christian College were recently given a fun-filled educational incursion, when the ‘World of Maths’ creators came to visit.
Armed with challenging activities, puzzles, logic games and the like, students were given the opportunity to work their way through a morning of fun by our guest.
Mike Matthews had the children mesmerised from the moment they entered, with even the least academic students soaking in his charismatic leadership of the morning. After spending time with the students as a group, and challenging them to not be afraid of making mistakes but to use them as tools for learning, the students were placed into teams. As teams, they worked through a series of puzzles, challenges and games that provided something for everyone. From working out the weight order of objects, to completing puzzles, to physically challenging activities, even parents and staff who attended had to think about solutions.
It was a brilliant morning that allowed every student, no matter their academic abilities, to engage and enjoy the world of mathematics.
