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.

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?

"Camping" was the word where it all began. Two of them started dreaming and just talking about it. With every conversation, their dream became bigger. 
Finally, they started planning - invited more people to join, wrote notices with details.

Falling Sick

Bad news - Few kids falling sick very frequently 
Good news - Opportunity to understand food and health.
 
The journey began with questioning "do we know how does food gives energy?". 
 
Hmmm...only the discovery about food digestion, nutrition absorption by blood cells led to the understanding role of food in our growth. So when we consume food which doesn't have any nutrition value, then there is not much for the blood cells to absorb!
