Age 5 to 11

Challenge Level

When I went into a classroom earlier this week, a child rushed up to tell me she was 8 that day.

Well, Happy Birthday to everyone who has a birthday today!

This challenge is about finding a variety of ways of asking questions which have the answer 8.

You might think of 6 + 2, or 22 - 14, or...

Try to create examples that use all the different mathematical ideas that you know about.

Perhaps you could challenge yourself to find ways of making 8 that you think no-one else will have thought of.

If you are not 8 years old, you might like to use your age instead of 8.

Vincent and Tara are making triangles with the class construction set. They have a pile of strips of different lengths. How many different triangles can they make?
