Arrange the numbers 1 to 6 in each set of circles below. The sum of each side of the triangle should equal the number in its centre.
In this problem it is not the squares that jump, you do the jumping! The idea is to go round the track in as few jumps as possible.
If you aren't able to use the interactivity, you could print off this grid to use with counters and a $1$ to $6$ dice.
In the first version, what happens if you throw mostly high numbers? What happens if you throw mostly low numbers?
In the second version, how can you try to make sure you'll be able to go with your next throw?
