Welcome to Day 11 of the Twelve Days of Mathematics for Christmas:
One of my grandsons’ favorite Christmas songs is the Twelve Days of Christmas. In honor of this song I am creating The Twelve Days of Mathematics for Christmas. There are activities for K-3. Intermediate – MS (grade 4 – grade 7), and Secondary (Grade 8 –Grade 12) and correlated to the number of the day. Check below for the links to the FREE resources for both TES US and TES UK.
The Twelve Days of Mathematics
Day 11: Eleven Pipers PIping
On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me eleven pipers piping, ten lords a-leaping, nine ladies dancing, eight maids a-milking, seven swans a-swimming, six geese a-laying, five golden rings, four calling birds, three French hens, two turtledoves and a partridge in a pear tree.
Eleven is the first “teen” number beginning mathematicians encounter as well as the first
double digit prime number. The K3 and Intermediate/MS packet have activities associated with those themes. Secondary students will be investigating the connection between a previous topic – Pascal’s Triangle – and powers of 11.
Enjoy! And as usual, be sure to check out all the activities as you may find things suitable for some of your students.
Enjoy the eleventh day of Mathematics and check back tomorrow for the final Day 12!
