Investigation week 3 8 Oct 2012

This weeks maths investigation was based around sport. The children were set the challenge of thinking up all of the sports where the winner was the person/team with the highest number of points. Then we thought about the lowest number of points to win. This really got the children thinking about the objectives in various sports as well as improving their understanding of how numbers can assist everyday tasks, such as in sport.

How many sports can you think of where the winner is the person/ team with the highest/lowest score?

We managed to think of 32 sports where the winner was the person with the highest total and 17 for the lowest.
