9. Funky, Fab and Fantastic. Yeah! That’s Middle School Maths.August 26, 2016
Here is a fabulous idea for prompting students to ‘see’ maths in the world. This activity was designed by Axelle Person Faughn, North Carolina University (Below).
The idea is simple.
Ask students to take pictures of maths they see in their lives. The photos below were taken by Axelle’s students.
Alternatively, you can give students an equation and ask them to find a picture representing that equation. Axelle gave Mathspig a slip of paper with the words ‘Demonstrate limits’. I sent back a picture of curly hair and a link to the equation of a helix.
Is that pasta really a Sine Curve?
