## Problem

A dog is looking for a good place to bury his bone.

He goes along each and every path only once.

Where did he start in each case?

Where has he ended up?

What possible routes could he have taken?

## Getting Started

If you count the number of pathways to and from each tree, what can this tell you about the dog's route?

## Student Solutions

We had some good solutions sent in and here are just some of them. Many pupils from Bradon Forest in the U.K. sent in solutions. Hannah produced a Powerpoint presentation for the solutions she found. Well done Hannah - here are her slides.

Georgia, also from Bradon, sent in a Word document with pictures to show the solutions. Here is what she wrote.

Lastly Krystof's dad emailed us his son's solutions to four of the problems and here's his solution for this activity.
