Of All the Areas
This NRICH mathematical problem is about the areas of equilateral triangles.
Students will need to measure the area different triangles but in triangles rather than squares. They will need to look for any emerging patterns which might lead to non-linear sequences that need explanation. They will need to use their visualising skills to help them to create equilateral triangles and find their areas.
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.
