This week in maths – 23.6.17
Friday 23rd June | 7 comments
This week in maths, we’ve been refining some of our mathematical skills. We discussed mistakes that had been made on some problems and where we had gone wrong. This was a really valuable session and the children were effective at identifying and learning from mistakes.
Then, we began to learn about the Fibonacci sequence: how it works, how to calculate terms and it forming spirals. Next week, we will examine the spirals by making them in Minecraft. Finally, and quite by accident, we looked at the golden ratio in nature – did you know your foot is the same length as the distance from your wrist to elbow joint… there are many more, which can you find?
