The Great Tower Building Challenge

Date: March 15, 2013 Author: Ms KWilliams Categories: General, Year Four, Year Three 0

This week, Miss Williams’ Maths group formed their own companies to compete in the ‘Great Tower Building Competition’. They purchased building materials, kept a record of their spending and designed and built a free standing tower.

Next lesson we considered which tower would be crowned ‘best value’ by dividing the height of the tower by the costs to work out the price per cm.

Congratulations to Tango.com who built the tallest tower (103cm) and the best value tower at a cost of £8.30 per cm!
