Maths week 2012

Next week is maths week in NZ.

Here is a snapshot from the 100 word Challenge website that some of us used for writing. We can't wait until this is up and running again in September!

Below the picture are some maths problems to solve.

 Make a comment with your thinking and your answers to these problems.  Remember to number your answers.

1. How many posts altogether were made for both the 100 WC and the 5 SC?

2. There were visitors from 50 countries. If 25 more countries joined in September, how many countries would that be altogether?

3. There are actually 196 countries in the world. How many countries did not visit the 100 word challenge blog?

4. 68, 000 visits were made to class blogs. What is 100 more than this number? What is 1000 more?

EXTRA - make up your own problem using these numbers for someone to reply to.

Have fun solving these problems! We can't wait to read your comments!
