An Olympic Challenge

  •  Let's get in the Olympic Mood

    We have put together a sequence of three puzzles that we hope will add a bit of pizazz to the coming weeks, when all eyes are on the Rio games and ... who wants to do maths when all that is happening?

    The puzzles are typical Natural Maths Challenges as they all have more than one answer and each has its own sting that takes the puzzle to another level.

    Puzzle 1 could be used with students from Year 1 onwards, as it only involves addition of the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. But the complexity of the challenge increases as more rings are added to the puzzle. Puzzles 2 and 3 might need to be used as part of your differentiated maths program.

    As ever, we would be delighted to hear from you if you feel that your student's work should be celebrated more widely.
