The Art of Maths

Last Thursday I popped around to our local HE group’s librarian and picked up a set of Cuisenaire rods to help me try to explain some mathematical ideas to Miss Oh Waily.  When I let her open the box the following day to take a look while I was finishing up some work of my own, she had a bit of fun with them.

Zane and Ninjago have become firm favourites of the little Miss.  There will be more art created by her on that theme in the next few blog posts.  But he is definitely her main man.

I like the uses she put the rods to, and maybe we might even do some maths with them !
