Year 8 Puzzle Box Project

“Year 8 have still been working hard in Maths this week to complete their fantastic puzzle boxes” writes Mrs Chidlaw. “The students planned out the designs themselves – making detailed 2D and 3D drawings – before measuring and drawing accurate nets for each piece of their puzzle. With lots of intricate shapes to construct and the deadline approaching, the pressure was high; luckily their friendships had more sticking power than the glue appeared to!

I was particularly impressed that some students even chose to make triangular, hexagonal and trapezium-based prisms. I think you’ll agree, all of the puzzle boxes look absolutely incredible and were well worth the effort!”
