Challenge Level

When you buy a set of 0-6 dominoes they often come in cardboard boxes - and those boxes sometimes don't last very long!

What if you were given lots of dominoes in a bag?

Before you started playing it might be a good idea to find out if you have a full set!

How would you go about it?

How could you be sure?

What if someone gave you some 0-9 dominoes?

How many do you think there would be in a full set?

If you do not have any dominoes, you might find our interactive Dominoes Environment useful.

EWWNP means Exploring Wild and Wonderful Number Patterns Created by Yourself! Investigate what happens if we create number patterns using some simple rules.

Let's suppose that you are going to have a magazine which has 16 pages of A5 size. Can you find some different ways to make these pages? Investigate the pattern for each if you number the pages.

Place four pebbles on the sand in the form of a square. Keep adding as few pebbles as necessary to double the area. How many extra pebbles are added each time?
