Maths Games - Fraction

Played the game of Rummy with Fraction.

Initial reactions were "let's play the same game as we played last time". Last week we played the Rummy with addition. But we when discovered that 1/2 is same 2/4 or 4/8, the game of RUmmy became interesting. We played and played.

Art of asking in Jatre on Bus donation. 
We have a bus for our library, we need money for the bus. So what do we ask for? We explored the power of persuasion.

AKD - Estimation

AKD special - Estimation.
We use Estimation on daily basis - how much to cook? How much to buy? How to plan our day? How much profit? Why my idea will sell? Where to invest? - we estimate based on our experience or data available or analysis. 
Estimation is a skill we introduced in Jatre for AKD.

So it began with "how much to stock"?
If I am eating six biscuits in a day, how many packets of biscuits do I need to keep in stock?
How do you estimate? - By looking at it? By doing some calculations? Guess how many in one packet?
