  • Tasks of the Month
    Two new cameos this month.
    • Brick Walls connects several mathematical areas and also makes connections to the real world of the bricklayer. The building blocks invite manipulation and the challenge of creating a building from the diagram seems achievable. The implied 'What happens if ...? questions on the card open the door to further investigation.
    • Mirror Patterns 2 is intriguing. Just making polygons using the two mirrors captures student interest, then after an initial play period a connection is found between the angles of the mirror and the created polygons. A search for numbers and patterns begins.
