Welcome to Haultain Memorial School

Message from Administration | December

What does it take to be a mathematical problem solver? This has been a focus in our classrooms throughout the fall. In particular, our grade 5/6 classes have engaged in a number of different math tasks and problems. Can you determine the number of blades of grass on the soccer field? What is the capacity of a large jar when given only a collection of smaller jars? If you did not have a protractor, could you create a device to measure the size of an angle? These questions, along with many more, invite our students to think deeply about what tools and strategies are appropriate and will help them come to understand the problem. We have been fortunate enough to be in our grade 5/6 classrooms on many occasions to see students either in the process of developing a solution or sharing their approach with the class. What was evident each and every time was the remarkable and often unique ways in which students developed their solutions. The construction of their own protractors was a particular highlight (visit our blog to see evidence of the various designs). The ingenuity and insight students displayed was exciting and encouraging.
