238. Duck repairs

Duck Brand tape – it’s brilliant!

You only have to look at post 234 to see a great learning opportunity with duct tape … but the crazy patterns on Duck tape make it even cooler!

Just a quick picture to share today. My colleague, D, went to the same TeachMeet as me and was equally impressed by the use of gaffer tape in the ‘Big Maths’ presentation.

Today his class were doing box plots and took the idea of averages even further. They made a vertical box-plot on a wall of the class heights. Brilliant!


I’m sure this idea has lots of potential.
