Life Maths – Solar Panels
In the interests of being environmentally friendly and frugal, we recently had solar panels installed.
Ever since we’ve been checking the meter readings – both our gross power used and the solar power produced. We’ve been checking them daily. Or more often. Which has given us plenty of real life applications for maths – particularly addition and subtraction. Our children have been excited to read the meter for me and work out how much power we’ve produced.
I love to see them get excited about maths!
