From 8 - 12 August we have New Zealand Maths Week, therefore KidsedchatNZ will be talking about Maths.

Below is a whole lot of different Maths tasks/challenges that you can complete during the week. You don't have to complete them all, just pick whichever ones suit your level.

The tasks/challenges are:
1. Throw a pack of cards out onto the concrete and put them into order as fast as you can. They need to be placed in suits from 2 to Ace.
