Most Mondays we’ll be doing a maths problem of some sort. This week we’re looking at two problems from the fantastic 7Puzzle Blog. The first is a puzzle finding ways of making 14, the second a problem using the numbers 1-10. Click on the numbers and have a go. Add any solutions to this post as comments.

I love the designs you created for the Queen’s boat last week. This week’s home learning task is a maths one and is inspired by some of the class’ requests for a problem solving task. For those of you asking for a writing task, we will be having a writing task next week.
We’ve been looking at challenging ourselves appropriately, so you can choose one of the two 7Puzzle challenges below as your home learning task.
Insert + – x ÷ where you see ? so the result of this 7-number calculation will be 70 when working one step at a time from Left to Right (no brackets allowed):
6 ? 3 ? 5 ? 3 ? 8 ? 3 ? 7 = 70
Find the number that should appear next in this sequence:
311 418 526 635 ?
Remember to read the problem carefully and try to use a systematic approach to solving it. If you want to comment your solutions you can do so on this blog, or on the 7puzzleblog.
