Discussion in 'Mathematics' started by yr4yr5yr6yr7, Jul 7, 2011.

  1. Hallo!

    Does anyone know a brilliant (!) open ended question/quest for a Year 3 gifted and talented group. It has to be maths/real life prob and current. My brain is dead....!

    Thanks sooo much
  2. i'm not surprised - why are you being asked to do this?
  3. Because he/she is a teacher?
  4. <u>PRICE LIST</u> Pencils: 10&cent; each Paper clips: 2 for 1&cent; Hairpins: 5&cent; each
    Janine bought 100 items from the Price List. She spent exactly $1.00. What could she have bought?
    I usually give the kids pictures and some hands-on materials like paperclipcs, hairpins and pencils for counting.

  5. I know this is late, but may be handy for you still... and other teachers

    With my class last term I gave them this problem:
    Which pocket money would you rather?
    &pound;35 for a month, or 1p on the first day, 2p the next.. and the money keeps doubling.
