Accessible Spaces

This set of Cre8ate maths activities asks pupils to explore the ways in which their classroom and school can be made wheelchair accessible. If all the activities are attempted, the topic will be an extended one. Mathematical connections involve making sense of plans and diagrams through interpreting scale diagrams. The construction of the scale diagram will require accurate measurement, conversion between a range of units and decisions about appropriate scales involving an understanding of proportion. The students will also be required to plot the loci for opening doors and turning circles of wheelchairs.
