Matchstick Maths

Year Group: 3/4

Subject: Numeracy

This is an exciting opportunity to get immersed in matchstick mayhem!  Work your way around a ‘carousel’ of fun mathematical logic puzzles, manipulating actual matchsticks to aid your problem-solving and create useful visual representations.

As the day progresses, you will get the chance to investigate linear sequences of matchstick patterns.  You will learn to record basic algebraic representations of your findings and use these to make predictions involving larger sequences.  The real challenge will be to design your own linear sequence for others to investigate!
