Week 2

           What a difference...

This week we have been so busy measuring the dimensions of castles and towers, which has included comparing lengths and calculating the difference betwen lengths. We wanted our maths challenge to reflect this. Thie class were given a green (easier), orange (medium) or red (difficult) level of question to choose from. They could work through the levels or pitch in at orange or red level.

The Green problem was to find the difference between 4 and 8.

Orange was to find the difference between 35 and 50.

Red was to find the difference between 2.5 and 6.

Arthur was very keen to work his way through all three problems, which he did.
