Eyes Down

Our monthly picture that you could use with your pupils, or your department, or just by yourself, to make you think about something in a different way

'square root clock'

This clock is a definite talking point! You could ask your pupils to:

  • explain the symbols around the clock face;
  • describe the patterns that the numbers on the same-coloured paper seem to have;
  • design their own clock face with numbers displayed in a “coded” way: KS3 pupils will like the challenge to do using only four 4’s and the basic arithmetic operations (so 1 = 4 ÷ 4 + 4 – 4, etc.), while older pupils could use more complicated expressions (e.g. 0.2-1 or 2log327).

If you have a thought-inducing picture, please send a copy (ideally, about 1-2Mb) to us at info@ncetm.org.uk, with a note of where and when it was taken, and any comments on it you may have.
