Special Interest Intake 2: Thursday 22 June

Congratulations to Olivia and Andreas for being the first to comment on our blog!

Thank you to Jonathon, Max and Lucas for sharing their optical illusions.

We discussed how a piece of work becomes an optical illusion and agreed it needed these key elements:

1. Careful useful of size and shape.

2. Alternating use of colour (Black/white).

3. The use of grid paper to ensure sizes and shapes are even.

We also discussed our take home problems (picture of this on Tuesdays post).  This was challenging, and it is OK to leave it.  I only expect the first column to completed the others are there if you need a challenge.
We will discuss strategies during class sessions. Especially finding fractions of a set.

We finished off our lesson with another countdown problem.
Please pop your answers in the comment session:
