Angry Maths!

In Rowan maths set, we have been learning about shapes and, in particular, 3D shapes. We have been learning new vocabulary to describe the properites of 3D shapes, such as faces, edges and vertices.

We have also been studying the nets of 3D shapes. What better way to have fun in maths than make 3D shapes for our own Angry Birds game?

We decided to use this fact in our maths lesson by creating our own Roman shields that had one or two lines of symmetry. We had to be very careful when measuring our shapes and designs to make sure our shields were as accurate as possible.

Here is a sample of our work:
