Maths And Logistics
A C2C teacher working through a grant from NAMIG worked in collaboration with staff from Coles to commence building a range of activities. These activities draw upon the logistics operation at the Coles Distribution Centre in Edinburgh to create a context for possible Mathematics and Science related tasks.
These activities are not intended to become totally classroom based and solely teacher-directed projects but could utilise the Coles Distribution Centre environment and staff to facilitate student-centred approaches to project and problem based learning.
The work completed to date has provided a starting point in Mathematics and there is scope for more work on these materials and significant opportunities exist for the creation of Science based activities and tasks.
