Remembrance Day Ceramic Poppies – Maths Problem Solving

This week saw us commemorating Remembrance Day.

Well done everyone for your hard work and for your thoughtful discussion

on Remembrance Day.

I thought I would add the following videos.

What do you think about the magnificent display of

ceramic poppies at the Tower of London?

The video should help you understand the amount of work

which went into making these poppies.

Did you realize that they were all hand made?

See if you can solve the mathematics problems on the next video.

Don’t scroll forward until you have worked out the answer!!

We acknowledge and thank  Theresa Young  for sharing this brilliant

‘Place Value’ presentation based on the First World War.

Please be patient since Prezi has to fully load before you can use it.

Mathematics: Reflection, Translation, Rotation,Tessellating Patterns & Perspective!

We have recently completed our study of

Reflection, Translation and Rotation in Mathematics.

Or in other words, flip, slide, turn!

We also designed tessellating patterns and perspectives!

Here are some of our efforts.

This unit was a lot of fun and enjoyed by all.

We hope you enjoy watching our videos! Please feel free to leave a comment!

Circle Art: Using a compass!

In Maths we have been trying to master using a compass. It’s not as easy as it sounds!

We first started by practising drawing circles in different sizes. We then discovered that if we moved the point of the compass to a previous outside line of a circle, we could draw different shapes – for example, petals and semi-circles. As we became more confident with using the compass, we started to overlap circles. The end results are all different, depending on our expertise with the compass. We hope you enjoy our show.
