Good morning,

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

RULES

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.

Think about

  • 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!
