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, here's a pretty scene, the
underwater creatures and the tall lighthouse joined by a seagull
and a cloud in the sky.
There are black markings all the way
up the lighthouse and on the support for the lighthouse going down
to the sea bed. These markings are $1$ metre apart. I have left the
numbering for you to do.
The sea level is of course "$0$" and
then positive numbers going up and negative numbers going down to
the sea bed.
If we think about the mouths of the
creatures then we can see how much deeper they are from each other,
or what distance they are apart.
For example the (mouth of) the fierce
looking blue and white fish near the middle is $1$ metre deeper
than the (mouth of) the golden yellow fish.
