Maths Mastery

What other (total) numbers of spots are possible with these two ladybirds?

How about different spotted ladybirds?

Investigate

Explore for other digits, or 5 starting numbers

Here are some number sequences you get when you follow certain rules, such as adding digits together and multiplying by 3 or 5Investigate some other rules

Could you create a puzzle like this, maybe with different multiples?

You dont necessarily need a grid for this!

For example, with 12 counters you can make a few different rectangles eg 3x4 and 2x6

Extend this to more than 18 counters.

Can you make a puzzle like this?

Make other puzzles like this with different rules

What if we choose different numbers eg 2 to 7 or evens from 2 to 12? How does this affect the numbers in the centre?

What if we change the shape?

So if you can make a square, that is best, followed by rectangle, or failing that, a stick

What can you say about each type of number?

What can you say about Alices sums? Extend to longer tracks

How can you tell is your cards will make a number that can be divided by 3?

How can you make this game more challenging or more interesting?

Invent some new rules that make it more fun!

Can you see any patterns?

Investigate for other stick lengths

Explore different ways of showing your results..

You might want to start with drawing pictures of odd + even

Extend to multiplication eg what happens when you do odd x even?

Investigate other stuff to do with square numbers

For example, are they odd or even or both? Why?

Is there any pattern in the sequence of square numbers?

Can you add two square numbers to make other square numbers?

Etc etc

How can we extend this investigation?

Change the shape? What else?
