Polygons and pentagrams

James has been exploring Microsoft Excel and using it to record data and produce graphs. Thea has been giving some thought to job application forms and has produced one of her own. This interest probably stems from seeing her Dad fill in so many just of late!!
Last night we dipped into the first few chapters of The Adventures of Penrose the mathematical cat and today this led us into a math and art activity - making patterns out of pentagons and pentagrams.
This evening I found a nice little presentation about Fibonacci on the Brain Pop web site. Thea and I enjoyed watching it together and having a go at the quiz.

Yeh! Penrose! We love Penrose the mathematical cat.
Loved the art work too.
