Find out about triangulation using a specially designed construction system.
Reflection and Symmetry
Observe 3D shapes that appear in the inter-spherical mirrors. Use the corner cube mirror and a range of kaleidoscopes, to investigate symmetry and pattern.
Tessellations – 2D and 3D
Explore both periodic and non-periodic tiling. Explore the necessary requirements for tiling the plain. Discover the relationship between some 3D shapes.
Use rules to create different patterns.
Engage in a classical mathematical problem inspired by Sir Walter Raleigh and solved 5 years ago. Explore triangular and square numbers
Use a Mobius loop to explore single surface and single edge structures. Solve the ring and string puzzles.
Towers of Brahma
Find a solution to this classic puzzle using processes like specialising and generalising. Use the puzzle to consider “big” numbers.
