These two group activities use mathematical reasoning - one is
numerical, one geometric.
An investigation involving adding and subtracting sets of consecutive numbers. Lots to find out, lots to explore.
EWWNP means Exploring Wild and Wonderful Number Patterns Created by Yourself! Investigate what happens if we create number patterns using some simple rules.
Well Amy and her dominoes had more than
one problem this month! As Edward from Tattingstone Primary School wrote:
You were asked, if there were 125 spots on the dominoes
Amy had, what could the four missing dominoes be?
That would mean the dots on the four missing
dominoes add up to 43. Alice , Kim , as well
as Rebecca and
from Harden Primary School, each figured
out the missing pieces had to show: 6and 6, 5 and 6, 4 and 6 and
also 5 and 5.
Was there any other possible combination? How
about if there was one spot less missing - so that there were 126
spots. What might the possibilities be? Would there be more, fewer
or could the problem not be solved?
