In these AMP resources, co-funded by the Clothworkers and Nuffield Foundation, students investigate making different symmetrical shapes, using one or more of three given shapes. Students will work logically, identifying and classifying patterns making general statements.
The key processes are:
*Representing - identifying the mathematical aspects of the problem and deciding on constraints as well as freedoms.
*Analysing - working logically, identifying and classifying patterns.
*Interpreting and evaluating - making general statements based on findings.
*Communicating and reflecting - communicating effectively and discussing results.
