We have recently completed our math investigation into geometry. After learning about the work of Greek mathematicians during our Ancient Civilizations Unit, it was our turn to make discoveries!
Using compasses, rulers and protractors, we were challenged to construct 2D shapes, tessellations and patterns. We discovered the properties of circles, strategies for folding right-angled triangles and the mysteries of pentagons. The diagonals of pentagons hold many secrets!
In these hands-on inquiries, we developed problem-solving skills and a deeper understanding of geometry.
Here are some of our cool tessellations.
Ask us about rotation, reflection and translation!
Ask us about lines, angles and polygons!
