Bryony’s Triangle Problem

Today we used origami to solve a fraction problem. We watched the following video.

Students worked together to come up with strategies to solve the triangle problem. The effort in the classroom was fantastic. It was great to see so many students working together and using so many different strategies. In the end there were 4 students who solved it correctly but so many other students were very close!
