In Maths, Year 7 students have been using their iPads to explore geometry and the properties of common 2D shapes. Using the app ‘Geometry Pad’ they have been investigating and deducing formulae for finding areas and perimeters of triangles and quadrilaterals. Some students have also been looking at polygons and describing the properties of different shapes. The apps ‘Show Me’ and ‘Skitch’ have been used regularly to enable students to explain their understanding and to practise using mathematical language.
