Maths inquiry - planting and what to do with the mint?

In maths we have started an inquiry into planting. We wanted to find out how many plants we need for the space, how much money it was going to cost, and also decide what to plant.

We have started to weed the large planter boxes on the back court. They are filled with delicious smelling mint. We spent the morning removing the mint and we are planning to make mint pesto later on in the week.

It has been a great opportunity to work together and put maths into a real life context.
