Year 7 Potential Scholars Maths

maths 7

As part of our work on circles, the Year 7 Potential Scholars were exploring the area enclosed by and the distance of railway tracks. We discussed using our circle knowledge – πr² and 2πr – with tracks, and then the children split into groups to make their own train track and work out the perimeter and area. They then had a chance to explain their working out and answers to CE Maths Set 1. This was a great opportunity for all groups to use a topic, learnt in the classroom, in a hands-on and practical way.
