Calculating the area of the canopy provided by our Maple tree
Year 6 identified the eight compass points around the tree trunk. They measured the distance from the trunk to each point. In class, they plotted the compass points on a grid with four quadrants and then calculated the area of the canopy. The scale was made easy as one square represented one square metre.
