Spiralling Decimals

 

Have you noticed that some very long numbers are very big whilst other very long numbers are small? Can you think of an example of each?
Here's a game where you can test your skill at putting small numbers into the right order - it's not as easy as it sounds!

 

How to play

You need a partner, a copy of the game board, and two different coloured pencils.
Decide who goes first.
Take turns to choose a number from the grid and mark it on the spiral. Make sure you know where 0 and where 1 is!
Keep taking turns until one of you has marked three numbers next to each other.

 

0.5 0.25 0.75 0.3
0.35 0.9 0.99 0.999
0.1 0.01 0.05 0.79
0.64 0.32 0.54 0.865


 

What next?

Can you work out a winning strategy?
Does it matter who goes first? 
Does it matter which number you choose first?

Can you make up a different set of numbers which would make the game more challenging?
Perhaps you could have different start and end numbers for your spiral?
Send us your ideas so that we can share them with other childre

Dice in a Corner

 

Three dice are sitting in the corner with the simple rule that where two faces touch they must be the same numbers. 


So, in the first picture above there are 3's at the bottom of the red dice and on the top of the middle green and there are 4's on the bottom of the green dice and the top of the white dice. The numbers on the seven faces that can be seen are then added and make 21.


In the second picture above there are 4's at the left of the red dice and on the right of the green dice and there are 3's on the left of the green dice and the right of the white dice. The numbers on the seven faces that can be seen are then added and make 23.

 

Use your own dice (you could use two or three or more...)
What total have you made? 
Can you make a different one?
How many different ones can you make?

Now for a challenge -  arrange dice (using at least 2 and up to as many as you like) in a line in the corner, so that the faces you can see add up to 18 in as many ways as possible.


Each line of dice must be along or up a wall (or two walls).  A line going up is counted the same as a line going along. Remember the dice must touch face to face and have the same numbers touching. The dice must be all in one line, so this arrangement below is not allowed;

Bottles (1)


You need to find a collection of jars and bottles of different sizes and shapes, like those in the picture below. 

 

I wonder which holds the most/least liquid?
Use estimation first of all.
How could you find out?  Explore!


Can you find a way of counting how many "small container-fulls" each will hold?
Can you find a better way?

 

Bottles (2)

 

You need to find a collection of jars and bottles of different sizes and shapes, like those in the picture below.

 

You could use this picture as an example and number the bottles/jars 1 to 8 from left to right.
 

So, your challenges would be:
How many 2s are needed to fill 1?
How many 3s are needed to fill 4?
How many 2s are needed to fill 6?

How do you know?

You could create your own questions for yourself or friends or family to answer.

Problem Solving Challenge


This challenge is about chocolate. You have to imagine (if necessary!) that everyone involved in this challenge enjoys chocolate and wants to have as much as possible.

 

There's a room in your school that has three tables in it with plenty of space for chairs to go round. Table 1 has one block of chocolate on it, table 2 has two blocks of chocolate on it and, guess what, table 3 has three blocks of chocolate on it.

 

Now ... outside the room is a class of children. Thirty of them all lined up ready to go in and eat the chocolate. These children are allowed to come in one at a time and can enter when the person in front of them has sat down. When a child enters the room they ask themself this question:

"If the chocolate on the table I sit at is to be shared out equally when I sit down, which would be the best table to sit at?"

     

However, the chocolate is not shared out until all the children are in the room so as each one enters they have to ask themselves the same question.

It is fairly easy for the first few children to decide where to sit, but the question gets harder to answer, e.g.

It maybe that when child 9 comes into the room they see:

  • 2 people at table 1
  • 3 people at table 2
  • 3 people at table 3

So, child 9 might think:


"If I go to:

  • table 1 there will be 3 people altogether, so one block of chocolate would be shared among three and I'll get one third.
  • table 2 there will be 4 people altogether, so two blocks of chocolate would be shared among four and I'll get one half.
  • table 3, there will be 4 people altogether, so three blocks of chocolate would be shared among four and I'll get three quarters.

Three quarters is the biggest share, so I'll go to table 3."

Go ahead and find out how much each child receives as they go to the "best table for them". As you write, draw and suggest ideas, try to keep a note of the different ideas, even if you get rid of some along the way.
 
THEN when a number of you have done this, talk to each other about what you have done, for example:

A.  Compare different methods and say which you think was best.

B.  Explain why it was the best.

C.  If you were to do another similar challenge, how would you go about it?
