Take 5 cubes of one colour and 2 of another colour. How many different ways can you join them if the 5 must touch the table and the 2 must not touch the table? Triangle Relations

Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

What do these two triangles have in common? How are they related? It's a Fence!

Age 5 to 11 Challenge Level:

In this challenge, you will work in a group to investigate circular fences enclosing trees that are planted in square or triangular arrangements. The Numbers Give the Design

Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

Make new patterns from simple turning instructions. You can have a go using pencil and paper or with a floor robot. How Tall?

Age 5 to 11 Challenge Level:

A group of children are discussing the height of a tall tree. How would you go about finding out its height? Three Sets of Cubes, Two Surfaces

Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

How many models can you find which obey these rules? Fit These Shapes

What is the largest number of circles we can fit into the frame without them overlapping? How do you know? What will happen if you try the other shapes? Street Party

Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

The challenge here is to find as many routes as you can for a fence to go so that this town is divided up into two halves, each with 8 blocks. Crossing the Town Square

Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

This tricky challenge asks you to find ways of going across rectangles, going through exactly ten squares. 3 Rings

Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:
