Home Learning 04-05-2012

04 May

There have been some great Rainforest’s in a bottle submitted as part of your home learning project. I know many of you still have plants growing at home too. This week’s home learning task is to develop an investigation which we started in class on Thursday with the Year 5s. I want you to investigate the Magic Vs problem – how can you make each ‘arm’ of the V add to the same total?  If you have already completed this challenge, then why not take on the Magic Y investigation invented by Elliot, Archie and Louis.

Using the numbers 1-7 can you make the three ‘arms’ of the Y total the same numberThe boys have found one solution, but can you find any others? Why not add your solutions to this post, or bring them into school to put on the maths wall? Are there other letters which could be used for similar problems?

See where your investigations take you, can you find patterns and rules?
