Body Conjectures

Body conjectures, after completing our mini me’s can you prove or disprove these statements about your body.

Hmmmmmm how do I work out a ratio? (watch the video and try the tasks on mathsonline before completing these tasks)

Create a post on your individual blog with your findings…..

• the length of a person’s outspread arms is equal to his / her height
• the length of the hand is one-tenth of a person’s height
• the length of the face is one-eighth of a person’s height
• the width of the shoulders is one-quarter of a person’s height
• the distance from the elbow to the tip of the hand is one-fifth of a person’s height
• the distance from the elbow to the armpit is one-eighth of a person’s height
• the length of the ear is one-third of the length of the face
• the distance from the nose to the bottom of the chin is one-third of the length of the face
• the distance from the hairline to the eyebrows is one-third of the length of the face

Can you find other patterns in your body/ or amongst your friends?
