Painting the Playground
This activity from Cre8ate maths lends itself to the development of personal thinking and learning skills, based on activities for a playground. Making a maze involves students in quite complex 2-D visualisation, working with a prepared spreadsheet, in excel, which encourages students to refine and redraft their work.
Jumping should first be played with counters to allow students to spot patterns and develop a strategy to win. Some students will be able to generalise their results.
Puzzle walk presents a puzzle for students to solve, before designing their own walk for others to try.
