This planning resource for lessons explaining and investigating Fibonacci numbers for Key Stage 3 mathematics students in Year 7, shows how to make the maths lesson fun and engaging.

Maths teacher Asnat Doza, at Comberton Village College, explains how her Year 7 class works through a series of envelopes, each containing a prepared activity about Fibonacci numbers and sequences.

Each group moves from one activity to the next at their own pace and the pupils do most of the work, while Asnat works the room to check progress and understanding.

She finds her pupils enjoy working together to solve the problems set, which gives her time to observe the learning that is taking place and to witness the mathematical curiosity that this lesson encourages.
