Vitruvian Man

Leonardo da Vinci made a drawing of a human that depicts relationships between many different lengths of the human body. At the end of our Measures topic in maths we went outside to see if any of these facts were correct. 

  • Your height is the same as your stretch finger tip to finger tip. 
  • Your arm is as long as all your fingers added together
  • Your radius is as long as your foot
  • And many other facts.


For most children these facts proved true (within an error margin of up to 2cm)
