Math is in the air

Playing outside also means doing lots of math. Yesterday on the beach Simon played something like nine different games with Grandmom. All those games (which he gave funny Russian names like мультихват or пескопад – multigrab and sandfall) involved sequences to be memorised, fractions to be divided in halves or simply summing up the points earned. Climbing in the park he does quite the same – counting the number of steps, for example, and then going back and forth a ladder adding 14 steps every time, going up to 300.
