End of term activities 5 - Patterns

Thursday, 01 October 2009 | 0 Comments

Tomorrow is the last day of term… hurray! Here’s another end of term activity for use with your maths class.

Screenshot of Patterns for Colouring

Check out Carlton Hibbert’s Pattern Blog. I do this in a computer lab. Get the students to pick a pattern from the 125 and growing choices on the site. Instead of printing out to colour in, open the pattern in a paint program (we have Paint Shop Pro) and use the fill tool to colour it in. Most of the patterns work with the fill tool really well, although there are a couple that have gaps that will need to be touched up.

The maths involved… well… there are lots of geometric shapes in the patterns. Enjoy the break.
