Using Pythagoras to do up your shoes
I put a request out in the TES forums for ICT resources and lesson ideas. A chap called Kevin Bertman replied sharing many great ideas which are all on his fantastic website e to the i pi. Although it’s not an ICT resource, a superb idea he had as an investigation into using Pythagoras’ Theorem was to use it to work out the most efficient way to tie shoe laces! It’s superbly explained in his blog post here.
What a fantastic idea from Kevin. I can’t recommend the TES forums highly enough. There are over 1.4 million registered teachers on the TES website and you always get quality resources if you ask for them in the forums. Brilliant!
