Scratch & Maths – I love it!

In one of my lessons last night, a brilliant student called Ben developed a Maths game to teach angles.  It was nice and simple; even so it had my own 12 and 13 year old playing it for 1 hour.

Ben applied Maths in the following area without noticing it:

1. Rotation and angles

2. Algebra  formula

3. Coordinates and using random numbers

4. Working out the hit zone needed a nice bit of sectors of a circle

More adventures in gaming to follow.
