Linking maths and public transport

Andrea Smithson

Miss Sayers and her Year 6 class have been using a creative way of linking active transport and maths this term. Students have been involved in two activities to familiarise themselves with the Albany bus route maps. Firstly they got to know the symbols and legends on the maps, and how to interpret the routes that each bus travels on. Secondly, students were given verbal instructions on how to get from one place to another in Albany and by using a certain time using the timetable. The group did an example together, and then struck out on their own. This is a great skill for students to learn to be able to plan their own journeys using the local bus network.
