An investigation involving adding and subtracting sets of consecutive numbers. Lots to find out, lots to explore.
Place the 16 different combinations of cup/saucer in this 4 by 4
arrangement so that no row or column contains more than one cup or
saucer of the same colour.
EWWNP means Exploring Wild and Wonderful Number Patterns Created by Yourself! Investigate what happens if we create number patterns using some simple rules.
This activity has been particularly created for the most able. (The pupils that you come across in many classrooms just once every few years.) It is seen as a possible follow on from
"Tiles in the Garden".
This activity takes "Tiles in the Garden", much further. We can keep the main ideas the same -
So this one used $26$ and the slope was generated by going along $1$ and up $5$.
This time let's put on a limit of using less than $100$ tiles.
What sizes of rectangles could be filled obeying the three rules?
How many tiles for each rectangle you find?
Are there any numbers of tiles between $10$ and $100$ for which there cannot be a rectangle?
