Maths - Problem Solving and Reasoning

Year 3 looked at different possibilities if they could see 6 legs but didn't know the animals. We came up with a range of possibilities and ways of recording our examples. Some children chose pictures, some chose to add numbers and some showed their calculations as a multiplication. Then some children investigated how many spiders and flies were on a web if there were 22 legs. The other children calculated how many aliens they could see with 3 legs and how many aliens with 7 legs if they could see 52 legs together. The children worked very hard to find a solution and explain their calculations.
