Chocolate Maths!

Throughout last week, we used our maths skills to help develop our chocolate products. We started by looking at different 3D nets we could use for our packaging. We began by examining the nets before they were put together and tried to use our knowledge of shapes to name them. After assembling them and looking at existing chocolate packaging, we were each able to then decide what shape we wanted our packaging to be.

Later on in the week, we then looked closer at the properties of specific 3D shapes such a prisms and pyramids. We worked out how many edges, faces and vertices a range of shapes had. We then used these properties to create 3D mini-chocolates out of clay, finally assembling them to create a mini-chocolate sculpture.
