Maths in the street – Google Maps – Microsoft Excel

Year Three have been thinking about the maths we use every day, sometimes without even realising!

We used Google Maps to locate our homes and then see how far we travel to school each morning. We then used our doubling skills to work out how far we travel in a day.

Mr Kennedy then showed us how to use a spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel – we had to input our travel data and using the auto sum button we would work out the total distance travelled over a week and even the school year!

Next we will produce graphs to display the data we have collected.
