Hello Years 7 – 13,
The answer to last week’s Maths Challenge is kindly provided by Sam in Year 12, who split the shape into 6 sectors; 3 of these were full sectors, calculating the area directly. The other 3 were not full sectors and Sam used his knowledge of trigonometry and areas of triangles to find the shaded region shown. His full solution can be found below – well done Sam!
This week’s challenge is open to all students and is slightly different as you can “choose your challenge” (or do both!!) The problem is available to download above and, as usual, all entries to me by close of play Friday with name, tutor base and house!
Mrs Uff 😊
