Nets to catch Angry Birds

16 Jan

Angry birds is a popular iPhone game, which you can play online here. Big thanks and recognition to @mrprcollins for blogging about these Angry Bird nets on his blog. We like them so much that we felt we should give them a mention too, please check out Mr Collins blog for great ideas and take a look at his Angry Surds display work.

Possible uses So we have used these nets to look at surface area and volume calculator work. As you can see to the right is a picture of work completed by my colleagues’ @emmaemma53 top year 8 pupils! Many of the pupils wanted to take their’s home with them. These can also be used to look at faces, vertices and some basic 3D shape properties at key stage 3. Below is a picture of work completed

Resources These have been downloaded by Mr Collins from The Little Plastic Man an excellent site and well worth a look.
