Matariki word count

We are learning to present our thinking and ideas in a range of ways.  
Context: Matariki
We will have been successful when we have gathered our vocabulary around Matariki and presented it in a word cloud on our learning blog.


We went to abcya.com to build our word clouds.

Sails Measurements

Our challenge was to:

  • Create a matching sail for your yacht.
  • Explain how you would work out how much material would be required to make both sails.

Measurements
  1. To know how much material I need I will get my three measurements by measuring my triangle's sides with a ruler. My measurements were, 13cm, 5.9cm and 11.5cm.

  1. Then I went onto a piece of paper and drew up my triangle with the same measurement but for the right side of the sail.2

  1. Once I have cut it out and put it the other way to make a rectangle with the length to get your area. 5.9x11.5=67.85cm², that means the area is 67.85cm²
