Explore Be Curious

Maths Pirates  are using ideas generated by the  Guerrilla Geography Project 

Guerrilla Geography Project is Swashbuckling inspirational!

Maths Pirates NZ - Goes GUERRILLA

Guerilla Thursday! - The day Maths Pirates walk to their local library.
Whilst walking,  Maths Pirates explore and connect with their community looking for mathematical knowledge and symbols lost or misplaced.
On Thursday 13th February 2014,  Maths Pirates were looking for the number 398.
The number 398 was found, on the community climbing frame by Orlando!
As you can see from the image, the transformation from lost to found was excitement of EPIC proportions!

Why Guerilla Library Day?

6. Guerila Geo amplifies Effective Pedagogy.  Enhancing the relevance of new learning.
"Effective teachers stimulate the curiosity of their students, require them to search for relevant information and ideas, and challenge them to use or apply what they discover in new contexts or in new ways." Page 34 NZ Curriculum
