EWWNP means Exploring Wild and Wonderful Number Patterns Created by Yourself! Investigate what happens if we create number patterns using some simple rules.
Find a great variety of ways of asking questions which make 8.
If you had any number of ordinary dice, what are the possible ways
of making their totals 6? What would the product of the dice be
"On practice run, the race was 4095 metres, and it takes two
hours for Chandrika to do the long distance run.
First of all, I thought Chandrika ran 2000m, then jogged 1000m,
then walked 500m, then 125, then 62.5m and I thought that there
wouldn't be exactly one metre left.
If there was 1 metre left, she could have travelled 1m, 2m, 4m,
8m, 16m, 32m, 64 m, 128m, 256m, 512m, 1024m, 2048m.
If you add all these distances, you get 4095m. There are 12 lots
of distance, 12 x10=120mins=2hours."
from Anglo-Chinese School, Singapore used the
'working backwards' method and got the same results except he
included the final 10 minutes in the time.
Owen and Ian from
Crofton Junior School, Kent built up a table. With a little
rounding up of the numbers you see that it comes out very close to
4km in 2 hours.
