The course will suit family learning for adults and children 7 to 11 years. The aim is to explore information on measures, shapes and space that relate to the pyramid. The Egyptian pyramids have been a feature of wonder and some measurements of the pyramids are unusual creating a wealth of conclusions on their actual uses.
There will be a practical and theory element to the session with a short comfort break, as required. The word ‘pyramid’ will be explored at the outset.
The course will make use of 2D nets and origami to make 3D shapes using paper and glue.
The pyramid shape will be developed so paper, glue and scissors will be useful.
A square-based origami pyramid will be attempted from a square of paper by folding. No scissors or cutting for that one. Just a small glue stick and the paper square.
The pyramid shape will be explored as it has special properties to help us in the real world, particularly with life-giving water.
We will explore a sample of pyramid pictures from around the world and discuss aspects of measurement.
A small selection of numerical and graphical questions will be presented. There will be a chance to participate using the whiteboard and win a template for a decorative rectangle ‘net’ to be sent by email based on Toy Story.
