This challenge is to design different step arrangements, which must
go along a distance of 6 on the steps and must end up at 6 high.
Can you design a new shape for the twenty-eight squares and arrange
the numbers in a logical way? What patterns do you notice?
Investigate the numbers that come up on a die as you roll it in the
direction of north, south, east and west, without going over the
path it's already made.
Thank you for your solutions to this problem.
You found several different ways of tackling it.
