All in the right question.

L.I.: use maths questioning to solve a problem.

"Hundreds, Tens and Ones".
Room 7 have enjoyed playing "Guess My Number" as a Maths warmup last term. This term they are using focused questions and devlop logic skills by taking this game to another level. Working in groups, the audience take turns to answer questions which are designed to identify the digits of a mystery three digit number. Here is an example of how the class used their questions for the number "809":

"Is the hundreds digit greater than 5?"    "YES."
"Is the hundreds digit less than 3?"          "NO."
"Is the hundreds digit equal to 4?             "NO."
"Is the whole number odd?"                     "YES"

Here is an example of how the class worked out the next number "423".

  1. Hello Room 7 my name is Waekamania and I go to Kawakawa primary school as a year 8. I really like how you explain how to play the maths game, but my question is can you show proof that the hundreds digit is greater than 5 and all of those questions?
