Maths

Today you have your usual maths lesson (at the bottom of this page) plus a maths assignment based on adding lengths. Upload it to Teams for feedback.

Imagine humans had evolved to look a little different to how we look now.

What if our arms were twice as long as our legs?

What if our little toes were the length of all our toes added together?

 

Your task today is to sketch the following altered humans and use your measuring and adding skills to measure yourself and add the lengths together to show how long their changed body parts are. You could measure the length of the body part that is changing to see how different the new one is.
I have included an example below to show you how this may look and what things you need to include.

They get a little trickier each time so do as many as you can.

 

  1. A human with a nose the length of a both ears added together.
  2. A human with a head the length of their hands and feet added together.
  3. A human whose legs are the length of the fingers on one hand added together.
  4. A human who has a torso (the main part of your body without your head and limbs) the length of the 5 longest hairs on your head.
