Puzzle | AIMS Education Foundation. This week’s Puzzle Corner activity is a magic trick with a mathematical, as well as a slight-of-hand, component. I first came across this trick in one of Martin Gardner’s many books on recreational mathematics. I liked it so much that I have been stumping students, friends, and family members with it ever since. In order to make this trick work, you will need to practice it by yourself until the moves (illustrated at bottom) become automatic, before trying it out on someone else. Its success, like the success of many magic tricks, depends on diverting the audience’s in this case, your students’ attention. You can’t do this if you are uncertain of all the moves and take too much time making them. We’ll start by looking at how the trick is performed and then look at the mathematics involved.

You will need at least three cups to perform this trick. Begin this trick by explaining that the goal is to get all three cups facing up after making exactly three moves. Performing the trick: 1. 2. 101questions. Games that make you think. Yummy Math | We provide teachers and students with mathematics relevant to our world today

Math Word Problems for Children. Investigations. What is investigative maths? First of all, what investigative maths isn’t ! It’s not the same thing as practical work (though practical work may be involved) – and it’s not just a different sort of problem-solving. In investigative maths, children are given a starting-point and some clear procedures to try out but they usually have no idea at the outset what sort of results they’re going to get. This is where the interest comes. Good investigations generate patterns of different sorts and it’s these patterns we want children to look for and identify in their results. What’s the point of investigative maths for children? Too many people have the idea that maths is a fixed body of knowledge with a rigid set of rules and procedures; they see it as a subject where you get right answers by just learning how to apply the rules correctly.
