Anzac Day Soldier Silhouette – Reflecting Images

As part of our Anzac Day study, we completed a mathematics and art activity.

We had to design the silhouette of an Anzac soldier.

We then had to reflect (flip) our image and paste it down.

This was much harder than we thought it would be.

Here is a slideshow of our finished work.

We hope you enjoy watching our slideshow.

Anzac Day 2015 – Anzac Soldier sketches

This year we commemorate the

centenary of the Gallipoli campaign.

Our unit of study for the first two weeks of this term

centered around the Anzacs and

why we commemorate them.

Our Integrated Studies unit was incorporated

with maths and art.

Here is a presentation of our efforts to enlarge

a picture of an Anzac soldier.

We hope you enjoy our Flip Book of our Artwork.

Mathematics – Problem Solving Puzzles

Recently we had an afternoon of maths puzzles and games during our maths class.

Here are some of our games.

One was called Monster Madness.  

We had to know our times tables in order to move around the game board

and outwit our partner by getting four in a row.

It wasn’t as easy as we thought!

Another game was to get four in a row using addition and multiplication.

The Magic Hexagon was very challenging.

We had to place the numbers 1-12 around the hexagon,

but each side had to add up to the same number. It was very challenging!

A great afternoon was had by all.

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!
