Have you been to a swimming pool lately? When you start learning about swimming it may be that you will go down the steps carefully to reach the bottom, or use the ladder from the side of the pool. You'll probably notice that I've coloured the steps. 1. 2. 3. Maybe it's time to number these coloured steps. Can you invent your own way of numbering the steps which go under the water? When you've numbered your steps in some way perhaps you'd like to send in the pictures? Detailed teachers' notes for this activity are available on our NRICH website, where you can also find thousands more mathematical resources including problems, investigations and games for all ages from 5 to 19.
