Is it an art? Is it a science? Is it even magic? Well, to be honest, it’s a little bit of all three, with a lot of hard work, patience and fun thrown into the mix. How else could we have fitted so much into the first five weeks of the first term? The list of concepts, ideas and skills that we’ve covered is huge, way too big to cover here, but a special, fun one that we did this week was to give a little technological twist to the simple topic of rotational symmetry. Once we’d learnt about the topic in class, I treated the students to a surprise, mini excursion; you should’ve seen their faces light up! The excitement wasn’t long lived as we only ventured as far as the staff car park. We snapped photos of the car wheels with our devices and uploaded them to store online. We finally used a new productivity app to produce the finished product. I’m sure you’ll agree that the examples look magic!
