Red Cabbage Indicator Experiment.
Recently we used red cabbage for a slightly different reason than eating it. We soaked it in warm water for two hours and then extracted the red colour from the water. We used this water to test the acidity or alkalinity of a variety of household materials. The results were amazing and the colour schemes which were produced were second to none!
Data Collection Fun!!
Who ever said that Maths isn't fun??. Sixth class pupils have recently been collecting data on each other with a view to finding averages in the areas of the height of everyone in the class and the amount of time spent on after school activities. We also had some fun group problem solving activities. It all lead to plenty of discussion, debate and was not without a few rechecks with the measuring tape!.
