Circus towers: square stacks

Work out how many acrobats are needed to form square-shaped human towers. Start by building a square tower with four acrobats: two acrobats in the base layer and two acrobats standing on their shoulders. Examine a table and graph of the total number of acrobats in the towers. Predict the number of acrobats needed to build ...

Hopper challenge: whole numbers

Help a frog to jump along a number line. Estimate the exact finishing point on a number line, after adding or subtracting multiples of whole numbers to a starting number. For example, 1+ (5 x 2) = 11. Explore the patterns made on a counting grid and number line. Identify counting rules that match the pattern of 'landing ...
