# Easter - secondary resources

Easter is traditionally the time when the Easter bunny arrives with chocolate eggs and treats. This collection of resources highlight activities around the themes of eggs, chocolate and rabbits.

It includes:

• some mathematical activities looking at techniques to analyse data on eggs, creating models of data and 3D shapes for packaging chocolate
• the engineering involved in the production of chocolate
• how cocoa yields can be improved.

### Rabbits

In this Cre8ate maths activity students learn that a simulation is a model of a real situation. Data for the birth rate of rabbits is provided and is used by students to develop their own model to simulate the breeding of rabbits in a field and consider the likely damage to the farmer’s crop. Initially this is done...

### Packaging

This topic explores flat designs which can be folded and used to package food and drink. These Cre8ate maths activities provide rich experience of visualising 3 dimensional shapes from 2 dimensional representations. In Four Chocolates and It Takes the Biscuit!, students will need to measure accurately and construct...

### Birds' eggs: scatter diagrams

This task assesses understanding of scatter diagrams. A scatter diagram is presented that shows the lengths and widths of the eggs of some American birds.

The task involves plotting additional points on the diagram, describing correlation, interpreting a point on the diagram, and estimating the width of an...

### Birds' eggs: scatter diagrams (14-16)

This task assesses scatter diagrams and lines of best fit.

A scatter diagram is shown of the length and width of birds eggs. There follows a series of five short tasks on:

• Plotting an additional data point
• Making a statement about correlation
• Making an estimate of width from a...
