Maths Week, Upcoming Music Concert & Open House
2nd November 2015
Eadaoin Meehan, First Year, winner of the “guess how many monkey nuts in the jar” competition.
Ard Scoil na nDéise Maths Week
Maths week was a busy week in Árd Scoil Na nDéise. Maths wouldn't typically be a hot topic of discussion at break times, but on this particular week both students and teachers were silently pondering numbers, furiously scribbling on scraps of paper, head scratching and occasionally making wild guesses.
Our maths teachers organised daily puzzles, which were displayed in the Senior foyer, and there was always a collection of students gathered around, figuring puzzles out, discussing possibilities and kicking themselves at yesterday's solution. There was also a 'guess how many monkey nuts in the jar' competition. This was won by Eadaoin Meehan in First Year, who got to bring the 562 nuts home.
On Friday, the Transition Year students had a maths quiz organised by Ms. Troy and Ms. Flavin. Mental maths came into play here as students left the calculators aside, and gave their grey matter a work out.
A great week all in all and already we're looking forward to next year.
