Here is a math challenge about exploring all possibilities
See document for all the info: Gods at the fair Investigation
Have a go at Task 1, 2 or 3
If the god sits on the right and then again on the left (both times with the same partner, that counts as 1 option. 2 gods have to occupy the seats each time.No odd number of Gods.
Have we worked systematically? (How can we show this?)
Have we found all possibilities? (How can we prove this?)
Why did we choose to show our findings in the way? ( Advantages?)
Year 6 Task 3 There is an algebraic rule you could use to work out n number of gods. Have a go at working it out if you can!
