Research Inventors/Scientists

Today I would like you to use the links below (and any other resources you have) to research 4 well known scientists/inventors. What important information do you think you will need to know about each of them? Take notes on each and then decide how you would like to present this information. (fact file, PowerPoint, poster, booklet . . . )

Number – 

Following on from yesterday’s Multi step word problems, I would now like you to create 5 of your own. You must know the answer to each of them and should have the working out to prove the answer to anyone else. Post one of your word problems on TEAMS and ask someone to solve it for you. Try and solve one from someone else also. I will be looking out for them!

Thank you to those of you who have already posted multi step word problems – they are fantastic. I would like to see more of these posted on Teams please.

Shape – Perimeter

Following on from yesterday I would like you to create a PROVE IT sheet explaining how you calculate the perimeter of a shape.

Remember a Prove It sheet has an EXPLANATION, EXAMPLE and a QUIZ. You could use an example from yesterday’s sheet if you wish.

I will save all the resources in Teams so if any file does not open have a look for it on Microsoft Teams.

As always any questions . . . just ask!
