Making Cubic Meters

Last week we created cubic meters. We constructed these with newspaper to visualize how large a cubic meter was. We then had to estimate and use our problem solving skills to work out how many would fit into our classroom. How many do you estimate?

Geometry of Ballet

At the end of last term to complete our inquiry in Maths, we looked at the geometry of Ballet. We looked at the angles and symmetry in the art of Ballet dancing. Here are some examples of what we looked at and explored.

Using a protractor we measured all the angles we could find in these pictures. We also discussed what these angles were called. Can you also see the symmetry.
