EWWNP means Exploring Wild and Wonderful Number Patterns Created by Yourself! Investigate what happens if we create number patterns using some simple rules.
Write the numbers up to 64 in an interesting way so that the shape they make at the end is interesting, different, more exciting ... than just a square.
Make a set of numbers that use all the digits from 1 to 9, once and
once only. Add them up. The result is divisible by 9. Add each of
the digits in the new number. What is their sum? Now try some other
possibilities for yourself!
Here is a little journey taken by one creative
They decided on an easy start by taking:
The pattern went as follows:-
This was quite nice, after the first number
[the chosen one] all the digits in the units column are 8, the tens
are 2 and the digital roots go:- 1, 3, 1, 3, 1, 3, 1, 3, 1.
So what happened when the starting number is
And the digital roots now go:- 9, 4, 9, 4, 9,
4, 9, 4
Whoa! That's quite something. The units now
go, after the first chosen number, 6204 and repeat.
Well let's summarize what the rest of the
exploration gave :-
Well reading this has been very exciting and
led Bernard to make a further change, using 7 instead of 8.
There is so much here that is fascinating.
I hope that your explorations have gone
