Good morning Paddington Class. Today is National Numeracy Day!!!
You have all been doing so well with your learning at home but I must say I have been particularly impressed with your Maths work and the challenges you have been completing.
Here is a special challenge for National Numeracy Day. It is called ‘How odd’ which I thought was fitting.
How many odd numbers are there between 3 and 11 ?
How many odd numbers are there between 4 and 11 ?
What do you notice? Can you explain your observation?
Can you find any other pairs of numbers which have this same number of odds between them?
Can you find a pair of numbers which have four odd numbers between them?
Can you find another pair of numbers which have four odds between them? And another pair?
How would you find a pair of numbers that have five odds between them? Six odds?
How would you explain to someone else how to find a pair of numbers that have a certain number of odds between them?
Please let me know how you get on.
