Today is a good day for pancakes (well last Tuesday was anyway)
I’m not sleeping brilliantly at the moment so an early start meant that I had some scotch pancakes in peace and quiet with the sunrise and there were a few ready for Jonathan to quickly scoff on the move as he left for his paper round.
Second round of pancakes was with Ebb and Sally and involved revision of circle theorems, it is surprisingly hard to control the dutch pancake syrup but here are a few attempts!
Tangents from a point are equal and a tangent is perpendicular to a radius:
Angles subtended by the same arc are equal:
The angle in a semicircle is 90 degrees:
Angles in alternate segments are equal:
My friend Sally says that from this activity you can tell I am a home educator of 20 years stranding and a maths tutor!
We were aiming for pancake soup at lunch time but were too stuffed. We waited until my mum had come over to stay and had more pancakes for dinner – dutch style with a topping of leek, bacon, mushroom and sweet potato in a creamy sauce.
