There are an unlimited number of Snappies to be drawn, and few rules; for instance, there is rarely a mouth, but you can have a beak, Snappies are not supposed to be 3D, but they do need to have eyes. Drawing Snappies will help students to develop fine motor skills, deepen their understanding of mathematical shapes, and assist them with spatial and creative awareness.
There are 15 Snappies in this student book that can be drawn by following instructions, followed by a series of games, activities and Snappy design challenges that encourage students to develop their own designs. The complete Snappy family was developed by secondary school mathematics and art teacher, Emma Waite, with her son Callum when Callum was 7. Completing the inspiring and artistic challenges in this book will familiarise students with the use of the Mathomat template as a geometric drawing, design and modelling tool. Snappy design challenges involve many mathematical topics, such as symmetry, tessellations, rotations and reflections. Suitable for years P-8.
