Some people say this has been our best snow for many years. These 4 snow shots can be the start of some great mathematical discussions. When does it snow in Australia? Can it snow in any season? Does it snow everywhere? Why? Why not? What sort of clothing is best for the snow? What sort of shoes should you wear? What is the deepest snowdrift? How deep does the snow need to be before you can ski on it? How long does it take a 1 litre block of snow to completely melt? Which plants can live in the snow? Which animals? How many different ways can you travel on snow? e.g. ski, snow shoes, snowboard, snowmobile, ski-lift, sleds. What are the minimum and maximum temperatures when it snows? Use these delightful snow photographs to explore a wide range of mathematical situations with your students.
