Monty demonstrates Archimedes’ principle in year 5

Posted on: 20 Mar 2015 by Weston Green School

Monty demonstrates Archimedes’ principle in year 5

Year 5 have really risen to the homework challenge set by Mrs Hawkins for Maths meets History week. They produced some fantastic mini-projects on famous mathematicians from history, including Pythagoras, Einstein, Blaise, Archimedes, Napier and Newton. With powerpoints, posters, magazines and even an Archimedes screw they were really able to bring the history of maths alive as they presented their homework to each other. The class were particularly fascinated when Monty produced some scales, a jug of water, some coins and some stones and proceded to demonstrate Archimedes principle of displacement which he discovered when he was in the bath. Eureka!
