Text Patterns & Algebra Year 6 - Frogs Lesson - Calculate

TLF ID A004293

This activity is designed to encourage students to engage with a problem, before they overthink it. Too often in class we begin with what is familiar to students and gradually increase the challenge. This problem begins with a challenge and encourages students to work backwards to solve a simpler problem, before applying what they know to solve even more challenging problems.
