Farming and Math
Agriculture is the art and science of fertilising the soil, growing crops and raising livestock. It also involves Math- to know about the measurement of field, number of crops that can be cultivated in the field. It is important to know yield profit on the work that farmers do. As the cost of the crops are dependent on the crops that the farmers cultivate. We students of Grade VI were given an opportunity to think deeper on this part, integrating Math with EVM project, to cultivate crops in our school premises. We measured the field, estimated the area of the compound and analysed to find the number of crops that can be cultivated. We pondered and wondered how math is essential in farming too.
