Maths Workshop

This afternoon, several classes were treated to a fascinating talk in french by two mathematics historians, who through extensive research discovered how ancient civilizations were able to indicate any number between 1 and 9999 simply by using their hands. This discovery has been illustrated time and again, through ancient paintings, sculptures and texts. The younger students used pebbles to count on their own abacus and really enjoyed the challenges set to them.
We were delighted to be given our own library copy of the book entitled 'Sur les doigts jusqu'à 9999'.
