Where would you choose? 7 Nov 2013

In Maths this week the children were given a challenge. One chair had one bar of chocolate on, one chair had two bars, and a third had three bars. Where would they sit so that they could get the largest amount of chocolate once everyone had gone up?

The children stood behind their chosen chair one by one, explaining and justifying their reasoning as they went. It generated a very exciting debate.

Where would you have sat?

We then played a second time, in teams, which each team having a representative who went up to the front.

And, yes, they did get to eat the chocolate at the end.
