Vincent and Tara are making triangles with the class construction set. They have a pile of strips of different lengths. How many different triangles can they make?
How many triangles can you make using sticks that are 3cm, 4cm and 5cm long?
Let's say you can only use two different lengths - 2 units and 4 units. Using just these 2 lengths as the edges how many different cuboids can you make?
Make a cube out of straws and have a go at this practical challenge.
