# Maths Map of Berwick

Below is a Maths Map of Berwick, in the area around our school. It is a Google Map, with a layer over the top containing a range of worded maths problems. The problems on this maths map are all to do with multiplicative thinking; that is multiplication, division, fractions, decimals and percentages. They are split into three categories:

• Green Pins – Easier
• Yellow Pins – More challenging
• Red Pins – Greatest challenge

For some questions you will need to use map view, some satellite view and others street view. Let us know what you think of the Maths Map below. If you need to view it larger, you can click on this link.

#### As a challenge, can you come up with a question to have added to our maths map?

Post it in a comment below, but keep the answer to yourself! We will add it to our map for others to solve.

1. Hi Everyone.

Malinthi and I have made up a special question for you guys.

On Sarah-Louise Place, count up how many mailboxes there are. Now, find the percentage, decimal and fraction of the amount of mailboxes made from brick.

Good Luck.

Zee and Malinthi.

4. I would love to do this with my school’s area! Do you have an instructional guide on how to create maps with questions?

5. Hi Patti,

The maps are made using Google Maps’ ‘My Maps’ feature. All you need is a Google Account. There is information about how to use this tool here: http://maps.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=144347.

Would love to see some other maps when they are created, if you’re happy to share :).

Cheers,

Dale Mills
