Making the Fibonacci sequence

As part of our second specialism in Maths we offer an annual enrichment event to AGT students from other schools in Wiltshire.  This year, 12  year 10 students from Sheldon, Lavington and John of Guant attended. 

They spent the morning in the Making Room with the brief to make a  mobile to represent the Fibonacci sequence.  Many mathematical surprises were found along the way, not least that the balance points for the bars of the mobile was very close to the golden ratio.
