An assessment for learning...
- Education Professionals
Two maths teachers from Framwellgate School in Durham are challenged to produce a lesson that combines both maths and art.
Elaine Fisher and Rosslyn Taylor are taken to Newcastle's Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, where they're met by teacher-turned-artist James Johnson-Perkins. As stimulus, they investigate the four unique bridge designs on the Tyne, and then create a lesson combining algebra and art, challenging their Year 8 students to fill a gallery in the Baltic with 3D structures.
Later, they meet maths guru Steve Humble, and the Discovery Museum curator, Andy Goldwater, who provide them with objects to help inspire their lesson.
