Using real life objects to help learning……
Lesson: Maths, Access to GCSE Key Stage 3 Class
We are currently learning to calculate volumes of 3-dimensional shapes. Students were tasked to find cuboids in the maths classroom around them and then calculate their volumes by measuring the lengths, widths and heights of the chosen cuboids and multiplying the values.
3-dimensional shapes are all around us and when real-life objects are used in learning it really helps students retain their understanding and knowledge.
