Three children are going to buy some plants for their birthdays. They will plant them within circular paths. How could they do this?
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.
If you split the square into these two pieces, it is possible to fit the pieces together again to make a new shape. How many new shapes can you make?
Tyrese from Wilson's School told us:
The middle is a good place to start as it only leaves four areas that the rectangle could be in.
It is easier if the number of plugs used is higher as there are fewer possible areas to check.
Good reasoning, Tyrese.
If you have any further thoughts, we would love to hear them via email.
