Snowy Maths

It has been an incredibly snowy time in Telford.

Here are some Maths puzzles based on the snow.

1. If 5mm of snow falls per hour and it snows continuously for 5 hours. How deep is the snow in cms.
2. If 4 inches of snow fall during the night ROUGHLY how many centimetres is this.
3. It normally takes Mr Jones 30 minutes to get out of his house, in to his car and to school. Due to the snow it takes 50% longer. How much extra time does this add to his journey time for a whole school week (IF it snows every day during this school week)

Design your own snow based question to add to the COMMENTS section of the blog.

Good luck

Best Wishes

Mr Smith

If a shape is 3 dimensional like a cube, sphere, cuboid or pyramid then it is possible to calculate the VOLUME of this shape.

Calculate the volume of these 3 cuboids

1. Length 4cm, Widths 3cm and height 2cm
2. Length 5cm, Width 4cm and Height 5cm
3. Length 10cm, Width 10cm and Height 5cm

If a juice box has a volume of 1000cm cubed it means it holds 1000ml or 1 litre
