Your Egyptian projects have been great, including food, model Canopic jars and some great use of ICT.  Well done, I will try and put some more examples on the blog over the next day or so.

This week’s task is picking up from the algebra session we did last week.  Remember the Rockets and Crocodiles games we played, they helped us develop our understanding of letters representing numbers.  Your task this week, and over the February Break, is to design your own version of this game based on an Egyptian theme.  Make the algebra rules you use a suitable challenge for yourself and other members of the class.  I’ve linked the original crocodiles and rockets, so you can use it to support your own design.  Use the comments on this blog post to discuss any concerns, or to offer helpful tips to others completing this task.

    What are the Ns?

      The N represents a number. You find out what it is by rolling a dice once. The roll gives you the value of N. Then roll again and that tells you what rule to apply, so if 1 says N+1 then you need to add 1 to the value of N(your first roll). I’ll explain again tomorrow with a game in class.

      The N’s are what the number is!

    What does 2N mean?

      It means 2 times N
      So if N equals 3, then its 2×3
