SRSP 7-11 Unit 7 Pythagoras and the world of numbers
Change and perfection, finite and infinite are important aspects of the science and religion debate and they are the subject of this unit.
These concepts are approached through ideas about the nature of maths and combine with the contemplation of the spiritual in art.
The unit links ideas in science, maths, religion, art and philosophy and encourages new and deeper ways of thinking.
This unit consists of four lessons and is suitable for pupils aged from 8-11 years.
- Were numbers invented or discovered?
- Are numbers real?
- Do numbers go on for ever?
- Does perfect also mean unchanging?
