Alien mask ...by

Hello, my name is Elif, and I love maths, so I’m going to show you how to make an alien mask using coordinates.

What are coordinates? They are a method of describing the location of points, the method was proposed by french mathematician Rene Descartes (Day-carts). He was born many years ago in 1596.

To get started you will need:

white paper, pencil, scissors, glue, green coloured paper and a ruler.

First, you could get a white sheet of paper then draw the coordinates with a pencil and use a ruler to draw the lines, or you could either print it out.

Secondly, you are going to put the dots on the white paper, then when you have done that cut it out and stick it on the green paper. After, cut the green paper then cut a strip of green paper and stick it at the back, now you have your wonderful alien mask.

You could wear the alien mask at a fancy dress party, or at a costume party.
