Connecting our Inquiry to everything we do

We are connecting our Inquiry, Maths is Beautiful, to lots of different parts of our day.

In sketching, we looked for pieces of nature (that were on the ground) that had patterns. As we sketched them we explored these patterns and what could be going on mathematically. One of the things we noticed was that the leaves we found were all very easy to shade over when tracing them. We figured this was because leaves have texture and 'different levels' so by shading over them, the different levels can be shown.

We also looked into our own shadows and how our shadows change size dependant on where we stand.

Maths seems to be everywhere!
