Monday Mathematics Madness!!

6 03 2017

Today we held Clapham Manor’s first Monday Mathematics Madness event! Six teams battled it out to be crowned Spaghetti Tower Champions. Their task? To use 20 pieces of spaghetti and 1 metre of masking to create a tower that would support one marshmallow. There was a time limit of 18 minutes and the tower had to be free-standing.

The challenge was set and the battle commenced! Parents, carers and other family members worked with their children to attempt the challenge.

Congratulations to the Fulford Three who won with a height of 71cm and a tower that didn’t fall over, even after 5 minutes. A prize is on its way to you! What type of shapes did they use in their tower? Why?

The rest of the results were as follows:

Tinkers: 71cm

Patrick and Family: 70cm

Bright Brains: 58cm

Jack Plum: 53cm

Marshmallow Munchers: 26cm

Maybe next time you and your family could join us for some more mathematical challenges!
