Year 5 solving maths problem


We have been working on area in our maths lessons. Mrs Carr gave us a problem solve...

' How many of your classmates can stand on a floor area of 1m2? '

We converted this to 100cm2 and then thought of all of the factors of 100.

We then made shapes with sides that were the same as the factors and then got as many of us as we could to stand inside!
