Odometer, the Universe and trains

Friday, 28 August 2015 ·

Today in class, Year 7, I linked to decimals:

  • the odometer in my car... rounding 19.999 to 2 decimals places is like 19999 on the odometer kicking over to 20000

  • trains terminating at the end of the line
  • Luna Park, because trains terminate behind Luna Park
  • and of course, Arnie, the Terminator.
