A fruitful activity

Who doesn’t know about the power of Desmos in the teaching of Mathematics?  The images, activities and everything make learning cool.  It’s one blog for Mathematics that you have to follow for inspiration and ideas.

There’s a wonderful collection of activities that will get you and your students thinking and analysing … fruit!  It’s called Pomegraphit.  Log in to your Desmos account and do a quick search.

Then, the learning gets juicy.

It starts easily enough in the collection of activities.

And, as you work your way through things, the opportunities for learning get really interesting.

And, of course, there’s a teacher’s guide to help you work your way through the Mathematics and the activities.  I never really thought about fruit as being difficult.  But, when you think of the pomegranate – maybe.
