Math in Games and Puzzles

Educational interests Thematic interests of the child

For many parents studying in home schooling, this can be
quite a challenge, trying to find stimulating and creative educational ideas
for their children. In this digital age everything seems to come with a finger
touch screen, so it can be very helpful to find some educational activities
that do not require connecting to an outlet or batteries, and if they are
consistent with your child’s interests, they are most likely Results. Children
learn the coordination of eye muscles and mental strategy. Some of them are
even educational, and they can learn about history and culture, as in the era
of the empire. Children are pure shale. It depends on us, both parents and
families, to fill their knowledge. Children themselves will work to develop
their focus and skills as they develop, and these learning games will help.

Make your own project of dinosaurs (checkers)

For a child who is obsessed with dinosaurs, finding
educational dinosaurs themed events and games would be a good start when it comes to trying to captivate and attract them. For example, a simple game
concept, such as drafts (drafts), can be adapted to appeal to their young
minds. First, the project on art, design and mathematics consisted of eight
square squares with alternative black and white squares, a game board. This
taught important skills in measuring, evaluating and, of course, sharing when
the playing field was divided into sixty-four. The number sixty-four was
studied, and we considered other figures that could be divided into it to
produce an integer. All the funny and mathematical games, which were just a
prelude to the creation of game counters.

Triceratops vs. Tyrannosaurus rex

Now for gaming pieces, here again there are valuable
cognitive lessons to learn, and a variety of different learning styles to
appreciate and apply. Each side (white and black) in the game with checkers has opposite figures, so why not make them pieces of dinosaurs so that a young dinosaur fan can learn the beginnings of the devils (chasers) while having fun with dinosaurs. We wanted to create twelve dinosaurs playing plays for each side – only twenty-four, another opportunity to explore numbers and the number of integers. Taking twelve “tip-winks” from another game for each
side, we carefully pasted on them the image of the head of Triseratops or the
terrible jaws of T. rex. If you have a printer / scanner at home, this task can
be simplified, since one pattern can be scanned and manipulated to match the
size of the plastic “imitation” that will be the basis of the
counter. We chose T. rex and Triceratops, as we have just read together about
some of the fossils found by paleontologists that show that Tyrannosaurus rex
and Triceratops really fought each other in the Late Cretaceous.

Dinosaur Thematic Checkers

With care, each of the prehistoric animal drawings can be
attached to their base with a double-sided adhesive tape. Then quickly explain
the rules and where you have it, your own home school education project, to
make a set of dinosaur chips (drafts). This simple project refers to children
in a key stage with one and two key stages. This entails a little art and design,
with mathematical reinforcement and even the creation of a little national
curriculum, if you present the concept of a herbivore, pursued by carnivores –
food webs and food chains.

Math in Your Home

With some simple measuring and calculating, you can determine how many tiles you need for your flooring project. If you are shopping for tile, this will help you get a handle on much the materials will cost you. If you are hiring an installer to do the project for you, you can provide the room measurements as well, to obtain an installation price quote-although the installer typically comes out to take their measurements.

Pen or Pencil
Measuring Tape
Calculator (optional)

Step 1
Measure the length of the room or the floor area where you are tiling.

Step 2
Measure the width of the room or the floor area where you are tiling.

Step 3
Multiply the length of the floor by the width of the floor to determine the square footage of the room. For example, if the room is 12 feet wide by 12 feet long, then you would multiply 12 by 12 to get 144 square feet.

Step 4
Add 15% to the square footage. You should also add 15% to the amount of tile you need to accommodate for cuts, waste, and breaks during installation. Also, you want to have extra tile after the project is finished in case you have future problems such as cracks or broken tiles. Also, the tile may go out of the stock, so if you do not have extra tile, you may not be able to replace the broken or cracked tiles.

Step 5
Calculate how many boxes of tile you need. Divide the square footage of the room by the total square footage of tile in the box. For example, if the box has 10 square feet of tile, then you would need 15 boxes of tile.


A good rule of thumb: If you do not have at least one box of tiles left when your floor is in then buy one additional box to keep in storage.

If you are installing a diagonal or diamond pattern, then you should buy at least 20% in extra tile than if you are laying a square or straight tile floor pattern.

Just a room and nothing more than a room – a 20 square feet room. A neat humble one. The room was over even before I got in and took my 3rd step (was it 2.5 steps). I walked out to come in once again to ensure that it was not a bad dream. Utter dismay! I still couldn’t come to terms with the size of it. Is this all the broker could find for me in all these three weeks. The bit more of the terrace area outside the room was good enough to make for a decent studio apartment.

What was going through the owner’s mind when he had built it? Was he planning it to be a storeroom? And now, to fuel the flame, I found something more interesting. There was a twin room adjacent to this room and a vacant one at that. There was a single common toilet for both the twins outside.
