A maths investigation

Today in our maths class were solving an investigation from nrich. We had to fill in a disk box with different colours, but make sure we put them in the right place and have the right amount of colours.We also had to work out how big the space where the booklet goes.If we got it wrong this would mean we would get the whole investigation wrong. This would mean ‘trial and error’ which was a key thing that was needed.

Here is the link to the investigation.

  1. It’s great to see your work, Molly and Lucy. I agree that trial and error (or trial and improvement as I like to call it!) is a very useful approach for this problem. In fact, it’s a great strategy for starting lots of maths problems.

    Well done!
