A mathematics investigation involving length, embedded in a real-world context.
In this investigation, the school principal needs to find helpers to give a signal to be quiet during assemblies. The assemblies take place in a large space so he needs people with long fingers so that everyone can actually see the signal!
This teaching resource includes:
- teacher notes, detailing a range of important information about the investigation
- a detailed description of the investigation for students, including step-by-step instructions
- collecting and recording data worksheet
- reflection questions.
