Maths ‘Week’ takes place this year October 12 – 20. This is a time for pupils to explore the Maths environment, both at school and at home. There will be lots of fun activities going on in school throughout the week. On Mangahigh boys can compete with other ¨mathletes¨ from around the world with the scoring going live from 7am on Saturday 12th! Any Maths homework given will focus on solving problems, as well as developing an awareness of Maths all around us … Shapes, Money, Measures, Ratio, Symmetry etc. We hope every child will benefit from Maths Week 2019. Sample puzzle-If each girl in a family has an equal number of brothers and sisters but all the boys have three times more sisters than brothers, how many boys are in the family?

Ms. Bleahene’s Rang a 6 were lucky to visit the new Microsoft campus in Leopardstown this week. As part of the visit they had to predict what the world would be like in 2050. You can read their submissions and an account of the visit here.

Congratulations to our boys – all 40 of them who earned 150 points or more on Manga High. They were awarded a medal to celebrate their achievement. Well done everyone!

We´ve just had a great week of fun learning activities as part of Maths week (an all-island celebration of all things Mathematical!). Maths trails, Maths puzzles competition (Monday is the closing date for entries) and an online blitz of mangahigh.com were the highlights. Check out some photos here.
