Basic Facts Athon / Mathathon

posted Aug 24, 2017, 7:10 PM by Reception @TMCS


Dear Families

All Tamahere Model Country School students will be participating in the school BASIC FACTS A’THON. The focus will be on learning basic facts (Mathematics), and will range from simple addition facts to challenging examples using all four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We are doing this to get all the students to be super quick at recalling our basic facts for Maths. We are also raising money for our new swimming pool. The students will be asked to find sponsors – these can either donate a lump sum or a per-fact amount, e.g., 10 cents. Please accompany your children when asking for sponsors and ensure they present the letter attached that verifies what the sponsorship is for.

The students will be asked to learn a range of basic facts at a suitable level. Practice examples will be given to students as well as the link to the SCHOOL BASIC FACTS MATHS WEBSITE: https://sites.google.com/tamahere.school.nz/tmcsbasicfacts

This will be part of the homework tasks for the next few weeks.
