    developing the interest further."
    We have been working on the mathematical area of 'money' and talking in class about Show bags and how many we could buy for $10 and $20. This had led to some thinking about the value of Show bags and how they are sold to make money - for a profit.
    This area of Mathematics is explored through the General Capabilities in the Australian Curriculum. In particular the area of Numeracy. This is what it says:
    Numeracy involves students in recognising and understanding the role of mathematics in the world and having the dispositions and capacities to use mathematical knowledge and skills purposefully.
    It is important that the Mathematics curriculum provides the opportunity to apply mathematical understanding and skills in context, both in other learning areas and in real world contexts. A particularly important context for the application of Number and Algebra is financial mathematics.

    {maths comp.gif} {IMG_1540Our class are going to take part in the Primary Maths Association (PMA) mathematics competition. We are taking part as a whole class in the following section.
    "This section of the Mathematics Challenge is about everyday teaching & learning in the
    learning setting. Entries could include ongoing learning conversations / investigations,
    children / student reports on mathematical learning or a big book of children / students
    demonstrating their mathematical thinking.
    Learners may choose any area of interest to investigate as long as the links with the
    mathematics are obvious.
    Investigations could start from a particular context based on a site, learning setting or
    individual issue or interest in which mathematics was a central focus in solving a problem or
    developing the interest further."

    It’s a type of money.
    Using the money you have as a profit to buy something.
    ...
    Profit is when you have a job and you get a certain amount of money each year.
    I think a profit is when you sell something for more than you bought it.

    The
    words Budget,

    and Profit arewere placed on

    Smartboard by the Mrs Scott.
    A budget is if you went to the show and your Mum gave you $20 and that’s what you have to spend. Mrs Scott did this when she told us to choose show bags for $20 or under.
    A budget is when you have a limited amount of money to spend.
    ...
    If you are saving up for something and you see something else you would also like, you can’t have them both. That’s a budget.
    Salary is when you have a job and every fortnight you get paid a certain amount of money.
    {IMG_1542 (Custom).JPG}
    The three words were then given accurate descriptions by Mrs Scott.
    How can we explain or show these three words – budget, profit and salary- to other people in an interesting and exciting way?
    ...
    We could do drawings to sell. Someone draws it, colours it in amd then someone sells it.
    Stalls on sports Day, we could split into groups and sell bandanas and flags and things.

    How do these ideas show the meaning of salary?
    Can you think of something that would also explain salary?

    The students chose a group they wished to belong to and then started to write down what they needed to do and what they needed to find out. Keeping in mind the words – budget, salary and profit.
