As part of Geometry for Mathematics we are attempting to create scale maps of classrooms, we have already created maps of own classroom and Selwyn House School from Christchurch. Both these experiences provided us with better questioning and reasoning. However our newest challenge has really tested our students - a map of Room Fifteen at Tawa Intermediate School. They've got some unusual learning stations and classroom set up (no teachers desk for instance!). We orginally had a detailed description of the classroom provided by one of the students, Tom. We then reworked that description with additional information provided in the form of questions asked through the Room Fifteen class page. Today each Mathematical group in Room Five presented their version of Tawa Intermediate School - and as you can see from the videom, four different groups would appear to mean four different maps!
