Mathematics

This term I’m dedicating our maths page to…

investigations, investigations, investigations!

It’s all well and good knowing lots of mental methods; how to find fractions of numbers, percentages etc, but can you USE THEM in real life situations?  Test yourself using the following investigations; you can even submit your answers to the n-rich team!

Hexagons try these…

Wonky watches

Escape from the castle!


Pentagons try these…

Fake Gold

Circle panes


Octagons try these…

Strike it out

Dotty six


There are plenty of house points on offer to those of you that record your answers showing WHAT you needed to do and HOW you solved the problem.  Ask me for some A3 paper and your work could appear on our ‘investigation wall’!
