We have been thinking about solving How Many Ways? problems. This was today’s question…
We worked in pairs to try to draw the problem to find solutions.
We noticed all sorts of patterns and could use what we found to find that there are 55 combinations if you have 10 flavours of ice cream.
We have been working on learning our 8x table. How is the 8x table linked to the 4x table?
We recalled our learning on multiplication from earlier in the year.
Today, we have been applying our knowledge of the 4 and 8 times tables. We know that octopus have 8 legs and sea turtles have 4 legs. We tried to solve questions like...
How many legs would there be if there were 4 octopus and 3 sea turtles?
If there was an equal number of octopus and sea turtles, how many legs would there be?
