Yes autodidactic! No it’s not related to automobiles this is an adjective to describe a person who is self taught. To improve the independence of the class, we finished off our unit about fractions with the children using Khan Academy, a Maths website. On the site they taught themselves different fraction skills and tested their knowledge with mini tests.

The idea of being an autodidact was spurred from us learning about Elon Musk the famous entrepreneur, inventor, explorer and not forgetting the inspiration for Tony Stark! Musk taught himself how to computer programme at the age of 12 selling the first game he made for $500.

We are hoping for a few Elon Musk’s in 4MD, lets see what the future holds…
