Choral Counting with the Marvellous Merkinchers

Some of the P7s at Merkinch had a go at their first Choral Count yesterday with Mrs Campbell.

Choral Counts are brilliant for helping pupils to think mathematically as they explore the patterns and relationships they see within the count and also try to explain why they think those patterns happen… what’s the maths behind what they see?

Take a look at the photos below to see the wonderful explosion of mathematical ideas the groups had.

See if you can think of some of the reasons these patterns occur – just like the pupils did as part of their discussion.

Are there any patterns that you can see that haven’t been identified yet?
