An engaging and fun way to bring math’s to life! Through actively exploring and employing the Fibonacci series/Golden mean we will build large scale free standing Fibonacci towers.
We will look at how the numbers relate to each other and how the series is generated.
Then we will discover where the Fibonacci series occurs in nature as well as in architecture and the built environment surrounding us.
Armed with an understanding of these numbers pupils and staff will be taught 3 basic construction joins, as well as a number of health and safety strategies’. They will use the Fibonacci series to construct a number of freestanding towers from a stock of prepared willow, the tallest tower wins!
