Series Foldable

Thursday, 07 February 2013 | 0 Comments

For “Arts and Crafts Thursday”* we made a foldable to summarise the formula in the topic Series and Applications (Topic 7 in the NSW BOS Mathematics Syllabus).

Series Foldable

and step-by-step:

In the above I used one piece of A4 paper. In class I gave students three halves of portrait orientated A4, making the end result slightly bigger. Either way can be punched with a two hole punch and secured in their folder.

Obviously this could be spiced up with colour etc. I suggested to the students that they use the upper side of the flap to add examples.

* renamed from Arts and Crafts Friday due to 2013 timetable.
