DANGER ZONE

The 100% Mathematics activities are designed to balance mathematical diagrams and instructional text, to support the learner at all times. They provide many opportunities to strengthen spoken English, written English, and mathematical skills/knowledge.

The DANGER ZONE is provided with NO SUPPORT.

You are on your own.

Sink or swim.

The DANGER ZONE is an area for strong mathematicians.

ENJOY AT YOUR PERIL.

DANGER ZONE CHALLENGE 1

Using either blocks (manipulative tool) or Pikinini template (representational tool), create a regular hexagon which has a perimeter of 36cm. (If you have a Laikim template, change the challenge to perimeter = 24cm, or if your template is a Tingting template, change the perimeter to 18cm.)

DANGER ZONE CHALLENGE 2

Using either blocks (manipulative tool) or Pikinini template (representational tool), create a regular octagon which has a perimeter of 48cm. (If you have a Laikim template, change the challenge to perimeter = 32cm, or if your template is a Tingting template, change the perimeter to 24cm.)
