When did the Olympics start?
The Olympics started in Greece in 776 BC. They were a series of brutal games in honour of Zeus (King of the gods.)
Events and games
On the first day of the Olympics they had a short sprint from one side of the stadium to the other. Gradually more and more events where added to the Olympics, to make four days complete. The events were Wrestling, Boxing, Long Jump, Javelin, Discuss and Chariot racing. The toughest event was the race of the Hoplites, who were men wearing amour and carrying shields.
About 50,000 people could sit in the Olympia stadium. Athletes had hotel rooms, but spectators had to find a place to put their tents up on a field.
In Maths we have been trying to solve this Magic Vs problem. We discovered a number of solutions and discussed why they worked. Elliot, Louis and Archie went further and tried to investigate a Magic Y. Using the numbers 1-7 can you make the three ‘arms’ of the Y total the same number. The 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 shapes which could be used for similar problems?
