Research-based guidance and classroom activities for teachers of mathematics

Accessible Spaces

This set of cre8ate maths activities is available in the National STEM Centre eLibrary. Pupils investigate the ways in which their classroom and school can be made more wheelchair-accessible.

This is likely to entail pupils making sense of plans and diagrams through interpreting scale diagrams; constructing scale diagrams using accurate measurements; converting between a range of measures; and making decisions about appropriate scales involving an understanding of proportion.

In addition, pupils would need to plot the loci for opening doors and turning circles of wheelchairs.
