Click on the image above to download the Maths Trail
WE SUGGEST THAT PUPILS ARE DIVIDED INTO GROUPS OF SIX.
Required equipment: pen, pencil, coloured pencils, clip-board.
Please read the Health and Safety section before beginning.
It is recommended that you look at the Map of the grounds and the Map of the Palace BEFORE you set off on the trail. If you have any questions about the route please ask.
There are different starting points and you will be told where to start. This is a circular route, if you did not start at question 1, you must make sure that you complete the earlier questions when you reach question 12 and before starting question 13.
All your working must be clearly shown. You will not get any marks for an answer where no working is shown.
You must answer all the questions to gain maximum marks.
All teams should finish in The Formal Gardens, the Water Terraces, to work on question 13. There are bonus marks to be gained from your answer to this question. This asks you to design your own question based on The Formal Gardens - be as creative as you can be!
If the weather is bad then you can use the Education Room to shelter and write up your solutions.
Health and Safety
Make sure you have plenty of drinking water and sun block with you - especially if the weather is hot.
