Concept cartoon discussing the area of a circular shape
Simple cartoon-style drawings present learners with their own misconceptions and generate discussion and argument. They are remarkably easy to use in the classroom as a part of normal teaching. The interactivity of each Concept Cartoon enables the speech bubbles to be used flexibly and new ideas to be added. A blank speech bubble encourages learners to add additional ideas.
Background text, written in pupil-friendly language, is accessed via a button on each Concept Cartoon. This suggests possible follow up activities and explains the maths behind the different alternatives.
