Did you know that the ancient Greeks made lots of mathematical discoveries?
This week, we have been looking at ancient architecture and learning about lines, angles and 2D shapes. We still use ancient Greek geometry in our art, architecture, music and games today.
In small groups, we hunted for geometry around our school. We earned a point for every mathematical legacy we could find, name and measure.
Here is a group of Geometry Hunters and their findings:
