Thursday 4th February

Good morning everyone!


Well done with your efforts in yesterday's problem solving. Miss Elcoate passed on some examples of your work and I was impresses with the neat layouts, excellent use of the decimal point and sensible answers. A few pupils in school were mixed up with the driving lesson question and multiplied instead of dividing. This is where we have to think logically and consider if our answer makes sense.


Today is a little more focussed on the problem solving skill of trial and error. Have a go; if something doesn't work then adjust your answer and you'll get there in the end.


There are two challenges to complete and I'm going to include the link directly to the work so that you can read all the information..... plus it has the answer under 'solution' if you're really stuck - no cheating!


In 'Four-digit Targets' I'll give you a hint. For a number to be a multiple of 3, when you add the digits the sum will be a multiple of 3, e.g. 123 = 1 + 2 + 3 = 6, so 123 will be a multiple of 3.
