Below are some current records set/broken involving **maths **(these aren’t official GWR’s). Have a go at them yourself and see how you get on:

**Count by 7s to 126 **– fastest time: 5.69 seconds

Fastest time to calculate 10 maths problems involving **4 digit addition and subtraction**: 1 minute 49 seconds.

**Count up by 7s to 126 with eyes closed**: 3.81 seconds.

When people are attempting to break or set a Guinness Word Record, **proof of measurement** is extremely important. Each record is based on a measurement, whether it is length, weight, area, temperature etc. The accuracy of this measurement is paramount. For many records the measurement needs to be conducted by a suitably qualified professional in the field. Now you practise **measuring things accurately and precisely** (so if measuring the length of something in metres, you may have to record it in metres, centimetre and millimetres for accuracy). Measure a **length, weight of an object, temperature, volume and capacity **and anything else you can think of.

**Create a number code** for the alphabet (e.g. a =1 b=2 be a bit more adventurous than this example) write your theme words using this code – can anyone crack your codes?!

Now ask an adult to write some addition, subtraction, multiplication and division sums in this code. Can you **decode** these and then solve them?

Find the** perimeter and area **of a Guinness World Records book.
