The Mullet Ratio – Which is more Mullet-y?

The Mullet Ratio – Which is more Mullet-y?


Let’s face it, we are always looking for ways of making lessons engaging.  Mr Vaudrey’s Mullet Ratio lesson looks like it nailed that requirement and I would say you could add ‘laugh out loud funny’ and ‘the lesson you remember years later’ as descriptions too.

Apart from the photos, which are gold, I thought mixing up the measurements used for each part of the mullet is a great idea.  It provides extension for students who are confident using the formula and have a good understanding of ratios.

Thumbs up as an activity to consolidate understanding of ratios, proportions and measurement conversion.  Light hearted Maths – it’s got to be good for you!
