Maths

Mark and correct yesterday’s work.

We’ve got two power maths lessons left in this unit. They’re both about volume, which the amount of space inside a 3D shape.

Work you way though Unit 11 Lesson 10 in you Textbook and the Practice Book.

Darwin’s Delights

Today’s work involves using animation software. If you can’t do this at home, you could do a piece of art or sculpture based on yesterday’s sketches to show what you think humans might look like in the future.

Step 4) Use your sketches from yesterday to decide which features of a human are going to evolve. Search online for appropriate images to use. If you have any photo editing software you could edit a photo to show your evolved human. Maybe a human with extra long thumbs for using phones more quickly. A human with extra eyes so they can look at their phone whilst looking around.

Step 5) Use morphing software to make the adaptations you have planned. Maybe use 3Dthis.com to morph from a picture of you into your evolved future self. If you have other morphing apps try using those instead.

Step 6) Look at your morphed images and watch back your animations. Make any necessary changes.
