Year 3 Maths investigation09-11-2018 | 10:48:33 | Comments Off on Year 3 Maths investigation

Today , Year 3   did a cool Maths  investigation  which uses the idea of consecutive numbers and the – and + signs to find various answers.  Some children found things that NO ONE else in the class had discovered  and that’s GREAT!

So this is how it started . They needed to choose any four consecutive numbers and placed them in a row with a bit of a space between them.

4, 5, 6, 7

After choosing their numbers they had to  place + and signs in between them, something like this :

4 + 5 – 6 + 7
4 – 5 + 6 + 7

 Key questions the pupils had to answer

How do you know you’ve found all the possibilities?

Tell me about your answers.

Do you notice anything about your answers?

Can you explain why these things always happen?
