The discovery of the Icosahedron

Weird to think about the *discovery* of shapes…a nice historical look at this cool platonic solid.

# Working with Primary Schools

This week I am working with younger students who are coming up from primary school for the day. I have them in the afternoon, and I thought that it’d be a great opportunity to cover some non-curricular stuff.

My idea was a set of activites, each on a desk, and students go from desk to desk every 15 mins or so. Unfortunately I got rather carried away and have completely overplanned. However, the resources are good so I thought I’d share…

Templates for the curves are lifted from here

Idea stolen from John Chase

Found on TES

I’ve posted about these before
