Having fun in Mathematics
Year 7 have been busy building robots and designing comical characters using many different shapes. As part of the integration program from year 6 to year 7, the students have been learning about geometrical shapes.
After studying the topic for 3 weeks, students revised the basic shapes and extended their knowledge of quadrilaterals, polygons and 3D shapes. Students learnt about nets of solids and how 2D shapes were used to create the nets for the 3D shapes. As an application of geometry, the students were asked to prepare a project to portray their knowledge. They were able to create posters and robots to demonstrate their awareness of shapes around us.
