Week 4 puzzle

0 comments

Edited: Feb 25

We hope you're refreshed from your time away. We heard you loud and clear that last week was a bit tough keeping some of the kids' attention. To hit the "re-engage" button we've found you a more structured, competition-styled puzzle. This one's NOT in the coaches pack. It's called Mini-Relay.

Here're some tricks we've found help after a break away:

  • By now you know the personalities of your kids. Mix them up! Separate the more boisterous ones, pair a leader-type with a quieter but mathematically stronger one.

  • Trying giving only one puzzle handout for each pair to work from - this physically encourages working together.

Keep talking to us - either in person or in the comments here!

  • We will meet in the dinning hall on Thursday. The afternoon will be split into two parts. The first is a maths relay and the second is the farewell and prize giving. You'll get the instructions you need for the rally on the day. For the prize giving, make sure you bring your comments about each of your children. Don't wing it. They'll notice. See you soon!
  • You did a fab job coaching last week. It was a joy to watch so many of the children super focussed and looking up at their worthy role models. Thank you. This week teams will do their 3 minute presentations. While they aren’t presenting, they’ll have puzzles to do. Points will be won for both The puzzles and presentations. The only thing you need to know is that we need to be relatively quick so we can give everyone a go. See you Thursday.
  • It is competition time! The contest will run over the coming four Thursdays with coaches and teams earning points to see who will be crowned the winner. Challenge 1 is our mathematical investigation and starts this week. Here is the information you will need. Please read it before Thursday. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1HizR-QVNMCIKvujtfTAjMv8tcv-pIRes If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email info@mathsteams.org
