Month: July 2017

This is how I used maths in the holiday.

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!

Math in real life

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!
