In maths we did rounding numbers by using a number line or the mountain to help us . We had lots of challenges to do. Some of the challenges were easy ,hard ,or normal. This is question – 234 rounded to the nearest 10 is 230. Challenge number 1 was quite easy but challenge number 2 and 3 was quite tricky. Rounding was fun!

I Used maths when I had to go to my friends house and I had to come back in an hour and a half ,so I counted on what time I had to come back.

When I had to go to the shops I had thirteen pounds and I had to pay three pounds so I took away the three from thirteen pounds.

Once I had to use maths when I was baking a cake I had to measure the exact measurement for the ingredients and check the temperature on the oven.

__Maths in real life__

I woke up at 1:30am, I left my house at 2:00am to get to the long stay car park near the airport.It took 10 minutes to get to the airport.The security took half an hour and grabbing something to eat took 30 minutes.The plane ride took 4 hours.

How long was the whole adventure today?

1:30 until 2:00 = 30 minutes + 10 minutes to the airport = 40 minutes, add on 1hour for security and food = one hour and forty minutes then four hours in the plane means 5 hours forty minutes do it would be 7:10 am!

In the Holidays I went to the shops for my mum.

My mum told me that she wanted a fizzy drink and for me to get a drink and some sweets.

My mum’s drink cost £1 and my drink cost 60p so I had to work out how much I could spend. I had a ten pound note so I needed to check I would get the right change.

The shopping cost £1.60 so I worked out I would need £8.40 change.

That’s maths in real life!

__Mary’s shopping __

I went shopping at Tesco with my dad, I had to use my money knowledge because every time my dad put something in the trolley, I looked at the price and added it all up. When we got to the till I was a few pounds off, but I still did very well to do all that adding as we bought a lot if things!

The Great Wall of China was built over 2000 years ago,and it was built by Qin Shi Huangdi,the first emperor of China during the Qin Dynasty.

Alsothe Great Wall of China is 8 metres high on the highest point of the Wall.

It is the longest building in the world and it is a really famous building.

Also it is a historical place in Beijing.

It takes around 18 months to walk the Great Wall of China because of its length.

I use maths in real life when my mum makes me and my two brothers pizza, so I say to my mum yo have to cut it into thirds.

Another time when I use maths in real life is when I am in the shop and I have to subtract the amount I am spending so I can work out how much change I have.

Finally I use maths in real life when I am in the house and I have to use my knowledge to work out maths problems my mum give me to get better at math than I already was.
