We've been using fraction walls to assist with equivalent fractions.

The square number solution!


Today in our math’s lesson, we were investigating square numbers. We had been given a problem to solve. We needed to see if we could create a wheel of numbers where the adjoining numbers would always add together to equal a square number. We used systematic approaches of trial and error in our groups to see if this was possible with a set of digit cards. It was surprising how difficult it could be but we worked hard to persevere and see if we could find a solution!
