This week we are marking 500 years from Leonardo Da Vinci’s death by learning about his life, art work and his scientific discoveries.

Today in maths we learned about the mathematical side of the legacy of Leonardo Da Vinci by studying his work- “The Vitruvian Man”

Leonardo hypothesised that a persons arm span matched their height and that their shoulder width was a quarter of their height. He also proposed that someone’s hand length was a 10th of their height.

We had a lot of fun testing out these observations and found them surprisingly accurate!
