# Maths

For today's maths I am going to give you two options. The first option is to make draw a bird's eye view of your garden. If you have a tape measure, you could measure your garden and then scale it down to draw on a page. So for example, if your garden is 15 metres long by 5 metres wide you could scale it down and draw it in centimetres. 15 metres is 1500cms, which you could then divide by 100 so you would draw a 15 cm line. My scale would 1:100.

If you decide to measure and draw your garden, could you tell me the perimeter and area?

## Perimeter and Area

Option number two is to use the data you collected about birds yesterday and apply our fractions knowledge to it. 1 will represent all the birds you counted yesterday so we can represent different types of birds with fractions. See my simple example below.

Pigeons 3

House Sparrows 7

In total, I saw 10 birds so my denominator would be tenths as there will be ten total parts.

Three of my parts were Pigeons so the fraction that was Pigeons was 3/10.

Seven of my parts were House Sparrows so the fraction that was House Sparrows was 7/10.
