Maths Life Examples

Parents can continuously relate Maths to real-life activities. For example:
– estimating the price of a shopping cart the next time you go to the supermarket.
– comparing prices of detergent or milk powder with different quantities, which will involve calculating price per litre or kg.
– get them involved with mental sums that you do, for example if you need to know how many sticks of otah to buy for a party of 12 people, assuming each person eats about 2 sticks.
– when baking a cake or cookies, and you need to double the amounts.
– weighing a luggage too big to fit on a weighing scale and you need to yourself with the luggage.
