I am the recource manager and my friend Robert is understanding coordinator and Elijah is the facilator and we work excellently in a team.

Thank you for that Vincente, I imagine that when classes or groups have used this activity then there did not seem to be much to write about from a pupil's point of view. However, we are always happy to hear from children or teachers about how our activities work. Don't worry if you haven't got a 'solution' as such.

Take a counter and surround it by a ring of other counters that MUST touch two others. How many are needed?

These squares have been made from Cuisenaire rods. Can you describe the pattern? What would the next square look like?

We can arrange dots in a similar way to the 5 on a dice and they usually sit quite well into a rectangular shape. How many altogether in this 3 by 5? What happens for other sizes?
