Last week, our teacher showed us some awesome MatheMagic and quick calculation tricks and we were asked to do some optional research over the weekend for our MatheMagic show on Monday. The show was so much fun! Firstly, Harry showed us how to work out a square of any 3-digit number in seconds! Then Rani used 4 playing cards to predict the future. Vicky did the most delicious trick as it involved chocolate! She started off with a 4x4 chocolate square, after some clever cuttings, she put all the chocolate squares back into the same place but magically she had a left over square to eat! Last but not least, Cabot performed 5 tricks in total including correctly guessing Ms Yeung's age and read everyone's mind. Learning Maths is so much fun in Year 6!
