Logo City inspires Integrated Learning in Year 9

November21

From a resource at Teachers Pay Teachers called “Building My Block” a Year 9 class used this Porject-Based learning activity to integrate their Mathematics with English and Food Technology.

1. Purchase the resource if you are extra keen. Or,

2. Simply make up a template to enable each student to construct their building (in this case a retail store).

3. Use tessellations for the roof design (google search “roofing tiles” etc. for ideas).

4. Print out the roof design and design for the front and sides of the shop. (an additional activity could be to price up the roofing tiles, etc.)

5. Paste onto card and glue or tape the building together. On a small ply offcut, glue the shops together, add a street and some cars and people and you have your very own town!

6. For the English curriculum add logos that promote each store’s function, add advertising, etc. This can be extended with (e.g.) the creation of a short promotion video.

7. In Food Technology, make cup cakes that use each store’s logos for a “Market Day” promotion to another class.

Good fun, great Mathematics/English/Food Technology, and a nice Integrated Study unit.

10 x 9 x 8 + (7 + 6) x 5 x 4 x (3 + 2) x 1 = 2020

NCEA Level 2 Algebra Problem. Using the information given, the shaded area = 9, that is:
y(y-8) = 9 –> y.y – 8y – 9 =0
–> (y-9)(y+1) = 0, therefore y = 9 (can’t have a distance of – 1 for the other solution for y)
Using the top and bottom of the rectangle,
x = (y-8)(y+2) = (9-8)(9+2) = 11
but, the left side = (x-4) = 11-4 = 7, but rhs = y+? = 9+?, which is greater than the value of the opp. side??
[I think that the left had side was a mistake and should have read (x+4)?]
