Problem Solving

Your maths activities for today are a little bit like the maths investigations we have been focusing on over the past week.

We would like everyone to try at least one of the following activities.

We know that a lot of you will have no problem completing both investigations.

If you're not too sure about trying both, why don't you have a go!

It is better to push yourself and have a go rather than not giving it a go at all!

Dartboards

The first activity is called 'Dartboards' and is all about working out how many different combinations of scores you can make using three darts.

We would like you to work in a 'systematic' or 'organised' manner when correlating the possible answers.

Watch the short video below, which explains in more detail what you will be doing.

Magic Squares

The second activity is called 'Magic Squares'. You may have heard of these before, but here is a reminder of what these are.

In a magic square, the sum of the numbers in each row, column and diagonal is the same.

Your task is to work out how you can place the numbers 1 to 9 in the magic square so that the sum of each row, of each column and of each diagonal equals 15.

Watch the short video below, which explains in more detail what you will be doing.
