Year 1: Paddington: National Numeracy Day

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 ODD!!!!

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.
