Bring biology and maths together with some truly absorbing activities involving Fibonacci, fractals, fraud prevention and more.
Numbers in nature are ubiquitous and fascinating. The same codes that help crickets avoid predators form the basis of the encryption that keeps our credit cards and personal details safe from fraudsters.
In this lesson, ideas about nature and numbers are presented with strong cross-curricular links between biology and mathematics at KS4. Students explore how science works and how it relates to the wider world bringing in themes such as fraud prevention, data encryption, art, architecture and music.
