Create maths - Building for the future



Description

This topic looks at the exciting mathematics connected with the regeneration going on in our cities. The three activities are based around the construction of rigid structures and provide opportunities for practical work and mathematical problem solving.

Activity 1: Finding rigidity Activity
2: Testing rigidity Activity
3: Bracing squares

Dramatic photographs of complex rigid structures, for example, the York observation wheel, large cranes which are currently a major feature of many of our cityscapes, and much else feature in Finding rigidity. These act as stimulus material for further activities on rigid structures. There will be many more examples of rigid structures in the young peoples' local environments and in your school environment.
