This Cre8ate maths activity gives the opportunity for accurate measurement, scale drawing and calculations involving pi.
If there is access to a running track, students look at how the track is marked out and distances measured accurately for runners in each of the lanes.
Alternatively, if a track is not available, students can investigate:
• Where could a track be placed in the school grounds?
• What is the smallest area required?
• How can the track lanes be marked accurately?
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
