Musto, Garrod
Mathematics Teaching, n220 p32-34 Nov 2010
Within his classroom, the author is often confronted by students who fail to see, or accept, the relevance of mathematics both to their lives and the world around them. One topic which is regularly perceived as being disconnected from people's daily lives is that of circle theorems, especially among less motivated students. In this article, the author shares mathematics work from his classroom that has been inspired by crop circles.
