Tangramtastic maths experience

Today Mrs. Rouse and teams form Year 4 and Year 5 attended Balcarras School for a maths experience morning. We looked at Tangrams, building an Icosahedron (see below), looking using the digits 1 to 10 to satisfy a range of problems, to include:- creating 5 pairs of multiples of 3, 7 and also generating prime numbers. These are a sample of the tasks and activities that took place. Each pupil came away with a special pen, the model we made below and a certificate. Great fun was had by all – including Mrs. Rouse!
