Investigate the different shaped bracelets you could make from 18
different spherical beads. How do they compare if you use 24 beads?
How many rectangles can you find in this shape? Which ones are
differently sized and which are 'similar'?
Draw three straight lines to separate these shapes into four groups
- each group must contain one of each shape.
This activity probably gave a number of
classes a good chance to explore shapes and their properties. It
did not easily lend itself to solutions being sent in. However
Angus, Gabs and Abi told us that they made rectangles.
Holly and Amy told us that they worked it out
by using their brains and said;
If you do have a go at this
investigation, no matter how far you get, do send in
your ideas. Teachers, you may want to send in a summary
of your group's findings.
