Maths Enrichment

Maths enrichment 

Today, children from years 3 - 6 were given 9 dot dominoes. They first had to find out if they had a complete set. All the children managed to order the dominoes systematically to form an argument to prove they had a full set. 

The next challenge was to identify how many dots there were altogether without counting each individual dot. 

Finally, for the children who were able to complete this, they then used their thinking to work out how many dots there would be in a set of 12 dot dominoes. 

We were incredibly impressed with the resilience and focus they showed towards the task.
